A 24-year-old male asked about a 24-year-old male:

Can 4 members of the same family stay normally together if they all tested positive for covid 19, without isolating or taking precautions inside the house? or can someone infected exacerbate for example the infection of another infected member?

COVID 19: All most likely have the same strain of COVID 19, so there would be no transmission from a positive person to a COVID negative person. They should not intermingle with anyone who is COVID negative, but they can freely interact with each other.
