Covid and phesgo

I had my last chemo end of October and now have the phesgo injection every three weeks in my thigh, yesterday I tested positive for Covid…first time I’ve managed to catch it, should I be taking anything or doing anything differently ? lumpectomy is booked for December 20th and I’m now worried this will be put back…any advice greatly received.
