Take it easy and thanks for posting.I had covid symptoms starting Monday - sore throat essentially… did RATS Mon, Tues, Wed all negative… felt a mild fever coming on Wed night and suspected the bug… RATS Thursday morning finally confirmed it…..
Now, if I understood correctly, I’m supposed to quarantine or self isolate for 7 days from either when I tested positive or when my symptoms started. For me that would be Monday, when my sore throat started.
So even through I tested positive only on Thursday, I’m free to reintegrate back into the general population on Monday.
I do find it strange that I’m ok to leave the house so soon. My concern is that there’s undoubtedly people in society with covid who are still recovering. I wasn’t a fan of wearing masks, and being anti-social but my recent experience has me thinking twice now.
My symptoms have been mild, but experienced it all for short periods ie mild fever, headache, back pain, chest pain.. the most annoying thing is the scratchy sore throat and the odd splatter of cough.
Stay safe everyone
Interestingly the double up hasn't killed on population sized scales worth being terrified of....but it does munt hospitals which obviously in a country our size will kill hundreds on the periphery of Rona.Picking we top it over winter. If you get a combo of Covid along with the regular winter flu, it’s going to be pretty hard hitting on the body.
Exactly brother.I do find it strange that I’m ok to leave the house so soon. My concern is that there’s undoubtedly people in society with covid who are still recovering. I wasn’t a fan of wearing masks, and being anti-social but my recent experience has me thinking twice now.
Seeing more and more people without masks in Tauranga. The majority of people now in some shops. Other shops everyone wears them. Seems a bit random. Lots of shops workers are also not wearing them now.Exactly brother.
I was in the supermarket yesterday and I saw a dude and his missus without a mask. I am not normally the intrusive type but I asked him where his mask was. he got all embarrassed and left with his wife to get one.
Well done Bruce!!!
