Great, not to worry.: It is good to hear that she is doing well. The important thing may be to have her wear mask to reduce chances of infecting others. She should just continue taking her regular medications and balance rest with activity. There is no doubt that the great majority of people have asymptomatic infection with the virus. Continue hygiene and cleaning around the house to limit transmission.

Agree with Dr. A: If after 2 weeks from the day the test was taken and turned out positive, she is free of symptoms, She had an asymptomatic infection and is hopefully immune from further infection with SATS CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. You should watch for symptoms and get tested if you develop any. Wish you good health!
