Schulte is now taking part in a potential at-home test for the coronavirus.

Schulte was asked to take part in a potential at-home coronavirus test. With it, he tested positive for a second time for COVID-19, after first testing at an ER when he first got sick.

He says he’s at the stage of “shedding” the virus.

Matt has been home in quarantine and like 80% of those who will get the coronavirus appears to be self-resolving as they call it.

He says he was first told to take just NyQuil before being prescribed a cough suppressant, Primatene for his lungs, and an inhaler.

Schulte is young, healthy and apparently has been able to fight off the virus at home.

While he is still testing positive (shedding the virus) he says the symptoms are largely gone. But still, come and go.

He is quarantining at home with his girlfriend Danielle to not spread the virus as we know the most vulnerable could end up in the hospital or even die.
