COVID 19 exposure : It's interesting how people advise a casual wait and see posture for a potentially deadly virus. If you were with your girlfriend, isolate yourself, do not leave your room until advised otherwise by a doctor who understands COVID-19 transmission. People with no symptoms are more likely to spread it. Contact a doctor via telemedicine.

Uncertain: Please contact your PCM who can assess for this. But, from a clinical standpoint that would be wise. COVID 19 Sx's may include fever, cough, feeling tired, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, chills, chest pain, nasal congestion, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.

COVID concerns: You did not state if he has mild or severe symptoms. Considering the so many unknowns of this virus, it is perfectly normal to be concerned. i'm sure his physician will guide him on what to do during his isolation to keep healthy and fight off his illness. All the best...
