I've had covid-ish symptoms and been running a low grade fever.

As I recall, Curt reported a test a while back. He described it as having the thing pushed 4 inches up his nose.

Mine was about 1/4 inch. It tickled and it itched.

I soooooo wanted to sneeze.

Results in two or three days.

    What prompted the test? Did you have potential COVID symptoms or perhaps you come into contact with a person with COVID?

    I had possible symptoms. Fortunately, my results were negative.

    I'm having symptoms.

    HtS,
    I am hoping for the best for you. Did you get a booster shot? If you are having a break-through case, I hope it's mild.

    I've had three Moderna vaxxes. When what I have was beginning and I was continuing to feel worse, I was a tad concerned but the fever peaked below 100.

    I'm feeling some better today.

    At the moment, I'm thinking I have a bad cold. Incidentally, the test also was for the flu.

    I hope you continue to feel better, Bill. Since you've been jabbed thrice, you should be fine regardless of whether or not it's COVID.

    Gang,

    I was tested for COVID at an Urgent Care facility connected to the U of Penn Hospital. Yesterday, I received a note on "MyChart" informing me that the test didn't detect COVID. Then it added that the test is not 100% accurate and indicated that I should continue to quarantine until my symptoms improve.

    I'm all but certain that I don't have COVID. I chronically have symptoms similar to what most accounts of Omicron suggest. The only reason I went for the test is that I was running a fever. The fever's still around though down slightly.


    We don't have much planned for Christmas day. We're having a family of two nephews and a niece here over night tonight and I'll mask up and avoid hugs. After that, we're mostly free.

    I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and that you don't have COVID, Bill.

    Sheri and I are planning to have a proper Jewish style Christmas dinner at a Chinese restaurant up the road from here.

    How perfectly American!

    A Jewish style Christmas dinner at a Chinese restaurant!

    If you think of it, raise a chop stick to Evie and me.

    I probably won't think of that.

    No doubt.
