    I understand they are more at risk but I can’t control them. I can control who/when they come visit us though

    I agree. And if you did something that put you at risk of infection, then you should have them not come visit you for a few weeks.

    And that’s what sucks about this disease and why it’s not an ideal time to mingle households on a big trip. Hope he has a mild case and recovers

    RonBurgundy pperc at what point would you recommend someone get tested? I’m able to complete workouts and runs without issue but I’m starting to get random headaches and light headedness. Minor throat/sinus irritation as well

    Now if you can. Did you have a possible known exposure? Probably best to self quarantine for 2 weeks and then seek medical care if you start feeling very bad.

    Nope. I’ve been careful about this whole thing which is why I’m going to be pissed if I have it. Been turning down invitations to barbecues, etc, basically no social life apart from occasional visits with my parents

    So it’s unlikely to be Covid at this point. Is it very easy for you to access drive through or some other testing? If so, go for it. If not, just quarantine yourself for 2 weeks and monitor for worsening symptoms. Unless you’re in an at risk population?

    34 and no underlying conditions. It looks like my primary is offering testing, I’m going to get in touch with him and see if he thinks I should based off what he’s seen in the local population

    i think his question is (i) he wants to prevent his in-laws from transmitting COVID to his family so (ii) how long should he wait after they return from MB to allow them to physically interact with his family.

    He did not ask the question you answered.

    The Rt for Nevada is 1.64. Apparently it was a bad idea to open the casinos on 6/4. The only fairly large hospital in southern Utah is in St. George. It is seriously considering cutting off patients coming in from Nevada since that community and region is having it’s own problems with increasing cases and hospitalizations.

    So would you recommend everyone being tested even if they have no symptoms? Just to check?

    Would be the way to solve this in a major way if there were enough tests, but there aren’t. So, no, if you don’t have symptoms and have no reason to believe you’ve been exposed, better to not go somewhere that could lead to accidental exposure. Just imo

    All of the casinos had signage up to encourage masks and were even giving them out free. I’ve heard that <10% of customers actually accepted a free mask and very few entered wearing one.

    Just got an email from my haircut place. Said one of their stylists tested positive so they’re closing down for a two week clean.

    Shouldn’t they let everyone who used that stylist know they were potentially exposed?

    Went for a long walk today with my family (wife, 7 week old, and almost 4 year old). Took a shower and tried to lay down for a nap (just got off overnight shifts) and was overcome with chills. Fever came on within an hour. has been hovering around 100-101. Called at 315pm, was approved to get tested at 4. Told me to wait 3-5 days before results and now I wait. We're still working in the office (obviously, I'm not now), but we're down to only 2 ppl in the building at anytime/limiting contact. My family and I have tried to be good about masks and social distancing, but idk. We'll see.

    I'm hopeful it's not covid, but my hope is dwindling by the hour. Tried to explain to my older son that I had to stay downstairs and couldn't play for a few days because I might be sick. He tried to give me his blanket and said he'd tuck me in so I could feel better. Holy fuck, I could not keep it together.

    Hopefully this will get some of my more trumpy family to take this fucking seriously...wear a fucking mask and stay home.

    Thanks for listening.

    I've had a very infrequent cough the past few days, but allergies have been bothering me a lot lately. Otherwise, just chills, some muscle pains, and then the fever thus far. I have a headache, but I think that's stress related more than anything.

    I think it’d be helpful to have a separate thread for TMBers that are currently infected and have recovered? Apart from a resource to trade therapeutic advice could also keep an eye on folks if they need help financially

    Florida Man. People just being bored and dumb.

    I'm one of them, in fact, so I can speak to it.

    In March I had a vacation planned to go to some springs up in northwest florida area... I cancelled it, because the fear of corona had set in and everything started closing, including parks.

    Fast-forward 3 months later to June in which the past 3 months I pretty much hunkered down and didn't go anywhere except Publix, and we entered "phase2" or whatever bullshit, and numbers started coming down a bit, girlfriend suggested going to Orlando for a Seaworld weekend trip when it reopened. At the time it sounded reasonable. My Florida Man brain was like ok cool things have gotten better, everything is reopening, must be ok, and they're limited the entrance to like 50% so that's a good move, makes it safer, etc.

    Got to Orlando and hotel announced while I was checking in that the county is implementing required masks *tomorrow* and I was like oh ok damn I guess shit isn't good now?

    Anyway we had a blast, went to Seaworld, Discovery Cove (highly recommended), and Aquatica. It was hot as fuck. The parks were 50% capacity and required masks in most areas. So thankful we came out of it healthy because it was a great getaway with the kids for the first time. Awesome memories.

    Yeah, see, I get it and I don't get it.

    The only thing different between now and March is that now there are millions of cases in our population. "Things seem to have calmed down" only because of lockdown measures.

    Things are not better now. They're worse. That's why Florida's completely, and I mean this sincerely, completely fucked.

    I don't expect anyone to handle this perfectly, but stop fucking traveling, people for fuck's sake

    its worth watching. we need a better handle on virulence changes with this mutation. more virus doesn't always mean worse outcomes.

    Not saying my or your test is inaccurate, but I'm a annoyed that I can't find much information about what kind of this test is. It sounds like they developed it themselves and got FDA approval, but it seems sketchy how little information there is.

    this has definitely been a known mutation for a while. the chart shows the change in prevalence in the population of the variants. This thing is nasty in how it can spread - no need to ascribe some mutation to it for it to do what it's doing IMO
