Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain exactly when your husband has exposure to the person suffering from COVID-19 in his office and when exactly the symptoms of fever appear?
The main symptoms found in COVID-19 are fever and dry cough. Other symptoms that can also be found are limp body, cough with phlegm, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle and joint pain, and headache. Other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, colds are very rare. If indeed your husband has exposure to COVID-19 sufferers and your husband is currently experiencing symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections (cough and flu) but his fever has still not reached 38 degrees Celsius, then in fact your husband can already be included in the suspect category. Your husband is advised to do a quick check of COVID-19 at a health facility that provides an examination. Call 119 ext 9 to find out more about the flow of the investigation.
For now, it's best for your husband to isolate himself at home:
Don't go out of the house at all except for the sake of seeing a doctor
Stay in your own room separate from other family members, if possible, use your own bathroom
Use a mask at all times, only open when you are in the room alone
Wash your hands often, you and your family members who live in the same house should wash your hands often
Disinfect items in your home, especially items touched by your husband
Do not eat from 1 plate with your husband and do not use cutlery together
Minimize contact with your husband, keep a safe distance of 1.8-2 meters. If there are risk groups such as parents and people who have comorbidities, you should avoid contact with your husband at all.
Maintain a clean and healthy lifestyle, get enough sleep, eat and drink, exercise regularly, and don't smoke
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
