I plan to find out definitively today with a rapid test, but have you or a friend/loved one gotten infected with COVID 19?

Edited: my fat fingers! Apologies for multiple postings of this topic! indecision

I haven't been tested and don't intend to be tested unless there's a reason. A good friend of mine was told she was exposed to Covid over the Thanksgiving holidays. So far, she feels fine. Don't know whether she'll get tested or not.

I went ahead and deleted your duplicate posts.

I've lost one friend. I had another friend and his wife both infected. He spent 4 months in the hospital and ICU because of complications due to a stroke he had a couple of years ago. She recuperated at home. They are both home now, but he is not doing at all well. I hate it that I cannot go and visit him. And of course, here on the Forum, we lost Eddie. I miss his occasional Tenor video.

I had a test months ago when I had to go into the hospital for a procedure.
I tested negative and had no antibodies so I’d never had COVID to that point.

Problem with tests is it’s only good for that moment, you could be positive the next day. Unless you feel you’ve been exposed there’s really no reason to be tested

Young nephew's wife had it, dang near died.
She's a nurse, may have gotten it from a patient.

Cousin about my age got it, was miserable, but survived.

I don't go much of anywhere, mask up when I do.

I agree...

 

The transplant team..dose ask me about any symptoms fairly often..via the phone tho...

 

It dose seem off to me how thier symptom questions... seem to be multiplying..

But never deminish...the other day it..was..have you had a sore throat?

 

I mean..who hasn't..?

 

They are also clear the the symptom that worries them the most..is...

No symptoms..at all....

 

Really? :0/

I seem to have been "distancing" before it became fashionable. You wife frequently says "You have to get off this street corner". My 2006 Honda Civic has about 55K miles, so I am not a rambling sort of guy. I live in a wooded area where neighbors aren't that close. I just keep staying home and only leave for things I absolutely have to do. Just like before the virus epidemic.

Tongue-in-cheek, I see significant value.  Last week stats that I could find online for South Dakota's daily "test positivity rate" were 30 - 60%.  Then on one day it was reported at 88%.  My logic (?) says that at that rate soon it'll be at 100% ... everybody in the state will have some antibodies [along with whatever immunity (?) that might afford] and then all those worked up South Dakotans can relax a bit......... and serve as a model for the rest of us.  cheeky

I know too many people that have had it with mixed grades of symptoms, Known several that have died. Often the obit reads: ...due to complications of Covid19...
I am presently in self-imposed quarantine due to an exposure. I am in my basement bunker on day 6 with only a symptom of mild lingering headache for a couple of days, that now has passed. Probably will not get tested unless worse symptoms hit me. I do plan to give blood again after a couple of more weeks. They will do the antibody test. Brad

It's so fashionable these days to claim that EVERY symptom needs nuclear explosives because it MUST be Covid-19.

I've just recovered nicely from 7-10 days of rotten stomach bugs that I have had before.
Bad cramps, bad indigestion, pounding headache, xxx snotty nose and restless nights.
Even my appetite disappeared. That's back again to usual.
I recognized all the symptoms so I said very little to avoid appearing rude by discounting everyone else's Covid opinions. Jumping to conclusions is an Olympic sport here.

I would almost swear I had it back in may. Fever, sore throat, headache. But the doctor wouldn't test me. Said I had strep and sent me home.

Two of the guys at work had it and right now they have a minor outbreak at one of our other workcenters. 4 people positive last week.

Haven’t had it, and with the current flare-up, I’ve gone into hermit mode, only venturing out for doctors, vets and groceries—though most of those come via my nieces, leaving them in the garage for me to bring in. I’m a reader and a news junkie, so along with the banjo playing, I don’t get bored.

My brother passed away from Covid complications in the spring. I could not be with him and he died alone. My wife's uncle & aunt are both currently in ICU in western PA. My sister-in-law is an emergency room nurse in Massachusetts and the stories she tells me are heartbreaking. Her hospital is filling up again. So don't tell me that this is just "the flu or pneumonia with a new name". Don't brag about walking around among other without wearing a mask. It's not a hoax and over 250m Americans have died from it. The selfish attitude by some in this country, and others, is astoundingly ignorant and a major factor in why we are not getting this under control until the vaccine is available. Unbelievable

I know many who have tested positive. None of them were or ever got sick. My wife and I had early exposure and developed suspicious symptoms but that was before testing was available so we don't know what we had.

imagine there'd be some relief, and maybe some hope that there's some immunity, but I'm wondering what effect a positive test result has on your routine activities?  Can you go more places? not mask-up? mingle with other positive cases? etc.?

I'm just getting over it. I've spent the last two weeks sicker than I've ever been in my life. I'm 59 and have an autoimmune disease, so I've been in super hermit mode since this started. My wife also has an autoimmune disease and hasn't had as much as a runny nose.
