COVID 19: It sounds like you do have some underlying conditions that could put you at risk for a more serious COVID 19 infection. So, if you can can continue to work remotely from your home, that would be ideal. Take care.

Agree with Dr.F: Keep working from home as long as you can. Wear a mask when you need to venture outside and practice hand hygiene. Wish you good health!
