So my wife and kids? Pretty sure they already know.
I guess there’s all the people I walked by at Home Depot, but no one would ever be able to track them. Other than that, I literally wasn’t around anyone else. But yeah, statistics and stuff.

**** man, I'm not trying to ride your *** or anything, but what about clients, extended family, etc.? I don't know anything about your day to day, so I have no idea and am not making any judgements even if I did.

You don't actually know if you have/had COVID-19. Which is fine. The most important thing is that you are okay and your family is okay.

I have no employees and no boss. There hadn’t been anyone else on the project I was on. I hadn’t been around my extended family for a couple weeks before I got sick. Literally, the only people (other than my wife and kids) I’d been around were people I’d walked past at Home Depot. I always I always use self checkout there. I mean I guess the health department could have called Home Depot?

You don't owe me an explanation. You obviously know how you feel about this so that's what it is.

I’m 99% positive my daughter brought it home from one of her friends. She’d gone out to lunch with her some of them and one by one, they tested positive. Then we got sick.
Two of my kids were playing D&D last week unmasked (after telling me they would stay masked), and one of the other players is now positive. One of them was in tears when they heard.

Not being able to get a covid test for over a week when my wife is showing symptoms. Everyone getting tested in Cali apparently. Everyone. Not an appointment to be had for over a week. And most testing centers have cancelled or greatly restricted walk-ins. Frustrating.

I ran into this issue in Norcal when we all caught the Rona at Thanksgiving. We bought tests through Vault Health and did it at home. Wife got hers at urgent care and begged them to let her take it because we were supposed to get on an airplane the next day.

Vault was pretty fast but still not ideal.

Might have to look into that. We can go to a pay clinic, but all of them I have called charge around $300 that you then have to get reimbursed through insurance. What a hassle.

I'd say assume she has it, but when our household got it I had my wife isolated with one of my daughters and was mega-diligent about keeping her in her room... we all ended up getting it a day or so after she tested positive. There isn't a lot you can do other than stay home. If you had someone that is a big risk I'd take them out of the home.

Luckily for us it was not that bad. It is the weirdest thing though... obviously people are dying of it and there are some outside the key demographics that are affected more than others. For us I'd say the regular flu is definitely worse and a bad head cold was worse. Good luck.

Yeah we are treating her as such, but like you said the exposure risk for the test of us is obviously very high. My biggest issue is I need to let my work know if she is positive because of my possible contact with people at work and my position. Could be big for my work. But I need to have that positive test result.
