Possible Exposure

My sister has a SCI C3-5 is on a vent  at night and has a trach that is capped during the day. She has 24 hour care (2 twelve hour shifts). Her main nurse just informed us that his wife has been exposed to COVID 19 as she is the DON at a nursing home. She started showing symptoms and is waiting for her test results. We are taking all precautions. I e. Wearing masks, cleaning anything that is coming in the house with Clorox whites and sanitizing my sisters room and equipment and constant hand washing.  We are concerned because we have People  ( 4 adults and 5 kids) living in our house. We don’t want anyone to end up in the hospital. What would be your best advice and or guidance? Can someone who is has underlining health conditions like my sister be able to be treated at home if she contracts the infection?
