I recently got exposed to a patient who got admitted for a diagnosis not related to COVID, or so we thought. I had a surgical mask and only in the patients room for maybe 30 minutes giving medications. Later on, we found out she was COVID+. The patient was not coughing and she was also not getting breathing treatment. I have so much anxiety about this. I think I am at a low risk for getting it? I know a handful of other nurses that have COVID already and I can't stop worrying. Please give me comforting words.
Btw, my hospital said not to isolate only if I have symptoms. I think thats a load of crap.
