Thanks for sharing. Please keep updated on how you're doing. Wishing you well!
I'll post updates as long as I can get to a computer.
It's been about 24 hours since I first learned that I have the virus, but I don't know long I'd been a carrier before being tested. The only symptom I can feel is a tiny bit of congestion in my upper chest and throat - less annoying than a common cold. At the time of testing I didn't have a fever and at 98.3 *F my temperature was actually a few tenths of a degree F lower that the normal 98.6 *F. However, I have heard that 98.6 *F isn't normal or everyone. My blood oxygen concentration was 95%, so that was good too.

All the best to you. Is there anything we can model for you?
My first thought would be to model the coronavirus itself (bonus points for doing it actual size) but it looks to be quite a challenge to model (pic is here, large file size so i didn't include it directly in my reply):

and I suppose that would be another topic.

I hope you'll come out unscratched as well as your family. Do you know when you'll be tested again to check if you're OK?
I don't think that I'll be tested again for at least a week or longer, depending on how long it takes for my symptoms to disappear. That's just my own guess; I haven't heard a timetable from any medical professional yet.
