We have had no symptoms and we are still feeling perfectly fine together, but due to our recent travel history, we decided to take ourselves and our close associates with whom we recently came into contact for the COVID-19 test on March 25.
Unfortunately, my fiancé’s results came back positive while the other 31 tested returned negative, including our baby.
We are doing very well, however, and she has not even shown any symptoms yet.
She is now in quarantine and I have also been in complete isolation for at least 14 days.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all in advance for your endless love and prayers and to urge everyone to stay at home as we are controlling the spread of this virus! Together we can beat this!
Love, D Red Heart, “he posted on Twitter.
