In brief: Probably not

The virus is transmitted via water droplets in your coughs/sneezes.
If you are not coughing/sneezing etc...And that you took tamiflu (oseltamivir) already, it is not likely that you are contagious now. But, caution is always advised. Cover your coughs/sneezes and wash your hands... Good luck.
