Thanks everyone. As frustrating as it is (I foolishly thought I was "better" than those that got it), it could always be worse and I'm fortunate for it not hitting me hard and us staying well with work throughout the last 9 months.
Just curious, did you get the rapid test or the one they send out?

It was the non rapid one. I asked about false negatives and retesting and they said it wasn’t worth it.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Best wishes marky. I hope he starts feeling better real soon. That’s scary as shit with those symptoms.

I got tested two days ago to confirm I was stu negative. Between my wife and I, we got tested three times in December solely to be extra precautious around the holiday. Sure enough, it came back positive. Fortunately, I have no symptoms. Wife and kid are getting tested today. Daughter has a cough at night but that could be seasonal since she’s had that before this time of year.

I’m racking my brains on how the hell I could have gotten it and all signs are pointing to Christmas with the in laws. That was the only massless extended indoor hangout. Everyone (there were seven of us) was supposed to have quarantined and got tested but only we did. So now they are all getting tested. Beyond that, I’ve been in two buildings for less than five minutes, masked, in the last two weeks.
Oh shit. Take care.

I'm just catching up on this thread, apologies for missing what has been a lot of posts for obvious reasons - hope everyone affected is soon on the mend, and their loved ones are safe. What a start to the new year.

Shit Andrew, take care. Hope it's a big nothing for you and the family. And holy smokes how do your in laws now follow through or call off a gathering if they couldn't/wouldn't quarantine.

Careful out there everyone! I'm sorry but sadly not surprised to hear that it is affecting our little internet community. I feel like we still have another year of this to get through and it's depressing as hell.

We had a lot of talks. We called off thanksgiving. Went through with Christmas with the wife getting tested but called off the sister in law visiting since her bf who she was spending Christmas Eve with’s sister was potentially exposed. So it’s either the mother in law still working in an office or the nice but right wing slightly nutty uncle who showed up unexpectedly and hung out for like three hours (masked but inside) talking about the neighbor in his apartment building having Covid.

Are you, wife and daughter still symptom free?

Daughter has had a night time cough for a couple weeks but hard to tell as she had that last winter. Otherwise, as of this morning yes. They just got tested yesterday so we will hopefully get results today.

Yeah hopefully your daughter's cough is just one of those kid things and you all come thru this ok.

Especially as covid manifesting in the young is quite rare. Sensible to be concerned, of course, but odds are well in your favour that she's not infected.

Wife and daughter both tested negative which is good, but now I have no idea what to do. It would have been almost easier if they were positive (and asymptomatic).

That's excellent for the rest of your family. So are you supposed to isolate yourself in one part of the house? I don't know the protocols for one family member being positive.

Sleep in a separate room, wear a mask around the house, keep your distance as much as possible, get retested soon.
