So far I've not seen any studies that show that celiacs are more (or less) susceptible to Covid-19. We did do an article on this which recommends that celiacs may want to consider getting their pneumococcal vaccination, which is a recommendation anyway, even before Covid-19:

 

Also, there is a study where doctors are asked to report Covid-19 outcomes in those with celiac disease, so we may have more info soon:

If your celiac disease is well managed, you are not any any higher risk compared to someone without celiac disease as of this date.  This link contains a lot of information and additional links from leading celiac disease research centers:

As a mom, I would advise you to keep to the gluten-free diet, get plenty of sleep, exercise, and sunshine!  Follow the CDC guidelines for avoiding COVID-19 (e.g. washing hands, social distancing).
