Stay home/test: Your underlying asthma increases your risk of complications if you have COVID 19. I would advise having a screening test, staying at home and drinking fluids. Monitor your temperature reading, and if there is fever, prolonged cough or shortness of breath, please see you PCP. For your allergies and asthma, an additional medication which controls inflammation may be added to your regimen.
