If my husband is tested negative for Covid can I assume that I am also negative?

In brief: No

It’s still possible you could test positive.
And it is possible that your husband was very early in an infection when his sample was collected and that he could test positive later. Or you both could have been exposed later and then develop illness. So you should get tested too. I wish you well with your health!
