Wishing you a speedy recovery, Idris.
I’m glad you pointed out that even w/o any symptoms you tested positive.
I hope people realize that they can be carriers w/o even knowing it & we *all* must exercise social distancing to limit the harm of this virus. Godspeed.#Covid_19

The directive is for the whole house to isolate as a household. Not one from the other (unless they’ve got underlying health conditions)

It’s nice that celebrities have great access to testing. Stay strong. (I don’t blame you, it’s just not how things should work)
