The musician, who performs under the name Quigley, has been in isolation with her son in the hospital PICU since Saturday.

She wasn’t tested herself for the coronavirus while in isolation but before heading home, she went to get a nasal swab done. 

‘We don’t know if I still have it or not… stay tuned,’ Goode wrote.

She said she remains asymptomatic but can’t believe she hasn’t contracted the virus given her close proximity to her newborn. 

‘As for me, I’m still not showing any symptoms, which for me is really a miracle because I can’t imagine how hard the last five days would have been if I had been sick at the same time of caring for a sick baby,’ Goode explained to her Instagram followers.
