Depends: If your last contact was more than 14 days ago, you do not need to be tested. Wear a mask when in public. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Wish you good health!
