Rough week here. 
My whole family has tested positive for COVID-19.  We are all doing well, except for my wife.  She lost her sense of smell and taste, and she is very tired and congested.  The rest of us are symptom free so far.
Anyone on here with experience or first-hand knowledge of what to expect?    Other than expect to make a bunch of posts on WNFF while bored in quarantine.  Thanks in advance.   :D

I had it early on and if most are symptom free you are fortunate. I did lose my sense of small and taste but gained it back after I was discharged. Bluestreak is a physician and I would guess he knows more about the onset of symptoms. Fatigue is an ongoing result and it can take quite awhile to regain your energy level. Invest in an oxi meter to measure your oxygen level. It should be at least 95. Also take your  temps frequently and anything over 102 is worrisome. Good luck for a quick recovery. Also look into donating convalescent plasma at the Red Cross before you get vaccinated.
