If he got over it the month before filming, he is long past being contagious. People are generally contagious from shortly before to shortly after onset of symptoms, from what I understand. We don’t know that he hasn’t told people he had it, only that he didn’t want to share that his senses of smell and taste are impaired. The CDC and others couch it that most people are not contagious a month after having developing symptoms. Or that people are probably not contagious. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/duration-isolation.html#:~:text=Infectiousness peaks around one day,days after symptom onset. Available data suggest that patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 remain infectious no longer than 10 days after symptom onset. More information is available at What We Know About Quarantine and Isolation. Most patients with more severe-to-critical illness likely remain infectious no longer than 20 days after symptom onset. https://www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-conditions/if-youve-been-exposed-to-the-coronavirus By the 10th day after COVID symptoms begin, most people will no longer be contagious, as long as their symptoms have continued to improve and their fever has resolved. People who test positive for the virus but never develop symptoms over the following 10 days after testing are also probably no longer contagious. Again, it might be paranoia to think that we don't have a full enough set of data on the disease to say how long someone could remain contagious, or that even if there's only a 1 in a million risk of someone being contagious I would prefer to have the ability to make an informed choice about whether to take that risk. Since potential loss of taste/smell are well-documented symptoms of Covid, I think it's fairly safe to say that he's not revealed that he recovered from Covid relatively recently. Probably any chef who he would have told that he had Covid would ask about how it affected him, and in particular how it affected two of the key senses for a chef. 1 2 Link to comment
