Don't have intercourse right now. I don't remember the time frame -  but you can check that out on a google search - or some other member may chime in.

Your isolation period is over now since 1/4/09 right? If I am right then this is the time where you need to clean your area extremely well and throw out most of the things you used. Sheets - Wash the bedding twice - throw out the disposable plates cups and utensils ( wrap in plastic bags ) and toss.

Clean - clean - clean. Try to trace your steps while you were in isolation and clean and toss things out you used.

Toss that Toothbrush!!

I may have missed some stuff  but you get the idea - right?
