How does your partner take care of you when you are sick?

I am curious about how people take care of each other in romantic partnerships when one of them has a contagious virus, flu, bad cold, strep throat etc.
This is not about Covid which has its own rules. Assume negative Covid tests and fully vaxxed partners. I'm thinking about normally healthy adult people with regular healthy immune systems, and no other conditions such as asthma or diabetes that might make it riskier to take care of a sick partner.
What does your partner do when you are sick?
What do you do for your partner when they are sick?
How do you balance caring for them with trying not to catch it?
I am asking because I want to see what other people might do but I am not trying to establish a norm and I know there is not one "right" way to do this. Again, assume that people might catch the other's illness and feel bad from it if they do, but that it's probably not that dangerous.
