Hello -

 

If you are taking steroids daily, you would have some immunosuppresion.

 

So this would put you into a higher risk category.

Is this the high risk group who have to stay indoors for 12 weeks

Yes, you would fit into that category, although you wouldn't be as high risk as someone with diabetes/cancer/high blood pressure and older than 70.
