“We got (Eleanor) tested was because she has one kidney and a vertical septal heart defect – (she) was born with a hole in her heart,” said the child’s mother, Anne.

The family’s grandmother has been in the ICU since March 20.

Anne and her husband have also been tested, though the results are not back yet.

They also have a 9-year-old son with autism. Anne said doctors told her to assume they all have it and to stay quarantined.

“This has been a nightmare. I would just tell families this is serious and just stay home,” Anne said.
