This happened in a drive-thru in Medford operated by our local hospital.

I might have had a slight case of Covid for the past couple of days. I was headachy and fatigued. I uncharacteristically took an hour nap yesterday and slept 10 hours last night. I feel mostly better today. I was vaccinated last March but the protection of the vaccine wains over time.

After describing my symptoms, my doctor buddy ordered a PCR* test for me. It could be something else besides Covid causing my symptoms, such as allergies or the smoke from regional forest fires. Besides satisfying my own curiosity if I had Covid or not, the county health department who I spoke to, recommended that I get tested. Plus I believe I will get a measurement of my antibody levels which might determine when I should get a booster shot.

With my wife back east I am more or less self-quarantining. I don't have plans or the need to be in public. I should get my results within the next 48 hours. So then I won't have to wonder if I could infect anybody.


*PCR means polymerase chain reaction. It’s a test to detect genetic material from a specific organism, such as a virus. The test detects the presence of a virus if you have the virus at the time of the test. The test could also detect fragments of the virus even after you are no longer infected.

    Keep us updated. This time of year I have mild COVID constantly because of allergies.

    I predict your test will come back negative. I think a more likely cause is inhalation of forest fire smoke.

    Donna,
    You're probably right. Although my "sleeping sickness" doesn't match up with smoke inhalation symptoms. Plus since my doctor/friend ordered the test I felt obligated to go.

    My covid test results came back as "negative" and "not detected".

    That's good to hear, Curt! Although the swab up the nose is a bit uncomfortable for a second or two, I think the peace of mind is worth it.
