Got tested corona positive today. Not having any significant symptoms. A little cough only.
My parents are senior citizens. They are not tested yet. I don’t know how to manage at home. How to stay separately from parents? Now what to do? Big crisis.
Currently wearing mask and sitting separately in the same room with them.
Both my parents got vaccinated last week. So, maybe that’s good. Worried about my parents only. What to do?

Is it possible that your parents can stay somewhere else for the next two weeks?
You can manage though.. if there’s a separate room (+ bathroom too?)

We have three rooms. But single bathroom and toilet. No other options

+1 please look for such possibility. Also do take inputs from doctor on what you should be doing

One should be cautious even after getting vaccinated.

Along with precautions make sure everybody (You and your parents) is taking steam for 5-10 minutes for atleast 2-3 times a day and gargling with lukewarm water also for 3-4 times a day.
You may take Ayush Kwath Kadha too after consulting any Ayurvedic Doctor but gargling and Steam is must.

Wish you speedy recovery.

I would suggest atleast get your parents tested as well, and either you or your parents shift to some hotel and be isolated for atleast a week.
You can’t take risk at this time.
Hope you get well soon blush

I would also suggest to please get your parents tested, because they are exposed to you…… it is better to understand if they arre infected or not…. if they are (lets hope and pray they are not) please start medication for them….. also you should start medication

Immediate start multivitamin, zinc and D3 for parents..
If possible consider moving yourself to quarantine hotel.

No point testing your parents..as they have got 1st dose 99% chance they will come positive in reports. .keep them under observation for symptoms and regular O2 levels

While the antibody test might turn out to be positive.. the Covid RT-PCR test will still be negative (Post Vaccination*)

Currently wearing mask and sitting separately in the same room with them.

1. Isolate yourself. Isolation means 100% isolation. If your house has a single toilet/bathroom, then you and your parents should not stay in same house. Make arrangement accordingly.
2. Get your parents tested now (rtpcr)- only if they are symptomatic. Otherwise get them tested after 5 days or when they develop symptoms, whichever is earlier.

Please get your parents tested. It’ll be preferable if they stay at some other place. Take Steam & do gargle frequently with salt & turmeric. Best wishes for quick recovery.

My cousin has just gone through the exact same situation in Mumbai 20 days back .

He had only occasional cough got tested Positive( test was done due to Airline policy)
Below is what we did
1. We immediately shifted him to hotel (As he was staying with his parents both around 65+ and grandmother 90+)..Mainly because house didnt had separate attach let-bath
2. Got the house sanitized
3. Mask 24×7 even at home…most painful part.
4. Parents/adults were started Multivitamins/Zinc/D3 and regular steam 3 times a day along with regular O2 measurement
5. Everyone stayed at home for 7-8 days as in worst case we didn’t wanted to spread
6 Parents were not tested (They had taken 1st Dose of vaccine)..but we started SOP assuming as they are also infected
7. Occasional coughing was there (I believe this is normal for Adults to cough 5-6 times a day)..But with COVID we try to be over caution
8. No other symptoms developed for parents
9 Cousin did his 2nd test after 15 days ..was still Positive CT value got increased to 28 this time from 21…he moved back to home started with some antiviral dose (Doctors says that its just initial 10 days when one can spread the virus)

Main reason to avoid testing was Grandmother. She is 90+, her + report would mean we had to hospitalize her. Which we wanted to avoid(unless she develops any sign of discomfort)

We are monitoring spo2 levels. It is 97-100. And taken steam also. We are thinking to consult doctor tomorrow for parents.
But Can’t afford to stay in hotel.

Keep all the rooms well ventilated. Use gloves. Sit in the other room. Disinfect the taps & toilet seat. Hope for the best.

After using washroom sanitize it with spray type sanitizer – be generous and sanitize fully and not to use for 10-15minutes by others

You should stay somewhere else or tell your parents to live somewhere till 2 weeks at least. Also your parents should get Covid checked.
