Aaannd as careful as I've been, I'm positive for COVID. :( Not just a chest cold after all.


From: KSCarolyn


80% of people who test positive for COVID have mild symptoms.  Hope you fall in that range.  My whole family (Son, DIL, two twenty-year-olds, and a visiting cousin from California) all tested positive and had very mild symptoms.  If they hadn't been tested, because they had been exposed, I don't think they would have known they had it.   That is what is so bad about this virus, you can be spreading germs without even knowing you are sick.  That's why it is important to wear your mask in public.


Yes, I thought it was a chest cold or so. It's taking quite a while and exhausting me. Hopefully it goes away soon :) And yes, I wear my mask always when out of the house.

So sorry.  Well, you are young and strong and hopefully that will help you recover quickly.  Assume you now have to stay home from work until you are fully recovered from symptoms and test clear?  Take care.

those of you working in health care are exposed so often.  I've been honestly surprised my daugher never seemed to have gotten it.  No symptoms before the testing began, and never tested positive once the testing was routine.  Our youth minister had it recently, said the tiredness was the worst for her, she's used to going 90 to nothing all the time (kind of like you grinning), sounded a bit like when I was recovering from pneumonia, got sick very fast but the recovery took weeks.

My nephew had it and his wife never got it.  She is routinely tested as she is a social worker crossing county lines.  


 Yep, can't start the new job till 10 days after this started, provided I have no symptoms and have been fever free 24 hours without aid of Tylenol or anything.

Yes, I'm staying home. The good news is I'm stuck at my own house, so there's always plenty to do! :) You take care of yourself! <3

So sorry.  Truth is, like Carolyn said most people recover just fine. Just try to rest and get better.
