In brief: Take good precaution

It is hard to say if you are still contagious, maybe not.
However it is never a bad idea to take good precautions such as washing hands, stop hand-shaking or hugging, cough in your arm. I don't think you need to quarantine yourself, it sounds like you are feeling pretty good to be running errands
