Default I think my roommate got the virus

So I live in a shared appartment for students with 3. One of them is on vacation while the other works as an instructors and I barely see him except early in the morning or night.
He is not friendly at all and when he is here, he is annoying but that's another topic.
The thing is yesterday night I heard him coughing a lot, so much that I had to put earplugs because I couldn't sleep. Now thinking about it he can have the virus since he has been coughing for the last 2 days but yesterday got worse.
And an hour ago I hear that there was an infected student in the school he instructs.
I know I should tell him about my concerns and communication is key but we almost can't see each other, it is like he hates me and also the house which he calls the shithole.
I only heard him for like 2 minutes before he left so it's also really hard to catch him and when it happens he just ignores me even when I say hi or give me a short response.

Me personally I'm good but I don't want to compromise the safety of the people around me that I go to school with.

That's very inconvenient. The school must have thought about a policy for this kind of problem

Yeah but also about personal decisions. I know if he had the virus he would still go to work, he is that jerk.

Yeah that's a jerk move. If you push him down the stairway he will be going to the hospital, where he belongs



Probably wont work in real life. So much paper work afterwards

Yes but he could bring other peoples life at risk... does he work for the money or just to seem tough?
He should get a test and isolate himself. What if you start getting sick in a week or two. You should get a test soon too.

If there is a dispensary or nurse in your school
I would visit it and tell them of your concern and
ask if you can get tested. Your roomie might just
have an allergy and that is y he is coughing but I
would do or say something if u r not sure.

Yeah but I think he should be the one doing a test. But I'm not nearly closed to him to even talk with him, but I guess I gotta tell him

Yeah I was thinking about that but it's not really common to have allergies in October.

Its possible to have allergies all year round especially
if you are in a warmer climate. There are many places
that administer free tests. If he comes down with a fever
that is the first sign of the virus. I would get tested. Many
college students here are infected cause they party in large
groups without masks.

It's really not your business to try and interact with him personally about his health. If he thinks he is sick enough, he should be going to see a doctor. If you are really that concerned...call your school's health department and let them know what is going on.

How so? Does he just not speak much or is he actively annoying?

What you need to do is get tested right away. Whether it is at the health service at your school or any place else that your insurance will cover, then you need to get tested as soon as possible.

While your roommate is around in the house, then you definitely should wear a mask around him since the chances of his being infected is high.

If you turn out to be infected, then you should find out where you should quarantine and make arrangements with your school and work (if you do work). You should stock up on food for fourteen days or have a way to purchase online groceries.

This could be a dumb question, but can you find another place to live, or are you stuck where you are?

If he doesn't want to listen to you, go tell to the director of the school
This is serious, he may put your life in danger, some body must do something about it, at least make him do a test to be sure he doesn't have the covid
