    That's really strange sfj I was thinking when I went to the hospital why do they keep going on about the tempature I have only had it a few times in the nearly 7 weeks also the cough I got was minimal I would say you probably want your tempature down a little it's going to be interesting when everyone goes back to work

    so your COVID-19 test was negative? You may be experiencing a different virus. That may be why you have a low-grade fever. you could still be contagious with whatever virus you have. Probably wait until it’s closer to 37 and when you are feeling better in general.
