    Been exposed...

    On Wednesday, I had coffee with an old friend in her small living room. She told me that she had taken a Covid test, was waiting for her result. Apparently the entire office staff where she worked was asked to take the test. She wasn’t wearing a mask and I did not either as she served tea and cookies. She was about 4-6 feet from me. I spent about 45 minutes with her.

    Today, Friday, she called me to apologize, said she tested positive. She has no symptoms. She said the county might be contacting me (so far, they have not). I looked up what to do after contact with someone who tested positive and it says to quarantine myself for 2 weeks. However, after I saw the person and before I heard of her Covid positive test, I was in close contact with my son and spouse.

    Now what? I guess I quarantine myself but how. I am wearing a mask at home but my son and wife have their school and job to go to. I live in a small condo. The spouse and Zi watch TV together, eat dinner together. I suppose we can keep 6 feet apart.

    The doctor told me to wait for a minimum of 5 days after contact before getting myself tested. This means I get tested on Monday.

    Yep. All you can do is wait.....
    be safe, don’t spend time with friends in confined space. Outside is okay, inside no good.

    This is what the consequence are for people who don't wear face mask or don't believe in wearing a face mask. Take the flu shot this season and keep social distancing. Wearing face mask could save lives.

    Zee, just kiss your ass goodbye.

    Zee, there is a good chance you didn't get it. My brother's wife works for the school system as a teacher's assistant. The teacher got covid and she was exposed. She had to quarantine for either 10 days or two weeks not sure how long. Then she got exposed again as her 94 year old mother got the covid from her other daughter. Again she didn't get the covid. By the way, the 94 year old mother beat the covid (she had a positive test) and is now doing fine. However, I don't think my brother's wife ever got tested. She just quarantined for the necessary time and never got sick, and neither did my brother get the covid.

    And Zee, you should check with your doc and/or local health department about what your wife and son should do now.
