Thank you for your response.

COVID-19 presents with a high-grade fever, sore throat, dry cough and headaches, these have been the most common symptoms of this virus. Just having a low-grade fever does not mean that you have COVID-19.

The best thing to do at this time will be to keep an eye on your symptoms.

Wear a face mask at home.

Wash your hands for 30 seconds with soap and water.

Steam inhalations with menthol crystals thrice a day.

Place a humidifier in your room.

The 77-year-old you live with at home should also follow the same precautions. In case, you have COVID-19, then you both have it by now and the only way to rule it out is through a test. I will suggest that you call your nearest health care facility for advice on how, when and where to show up for a test.
