When is your testing date? I can't believe you need to wait in a queue to get tested. Here we just walk in and get tested. They also already vaccinated 1.3 mil people / 10 mil.

There aren't any slots open in my area. Will have to wait until later this week, and call my Dr to get a scheduled test. For now I live in my office and guest bedroom.

Greasy, where you guys mostly outside or was it a lot of indoors stuff.


My brother got my close friend group frisbee golf pucks as an outdoor activity. Seems safe but IDK.

That's how it began with me, felt fine for the first week after exposure, then it begins to creep in on you. Eventually you feel it hard. Everybody hopes they are asymptomatic, but almost nobody is. The virus takes awhile before you feel it, hell for the first few days of infection your body isn't even fighting it yet because it's deciding what to do.

Also, despite your own decisions, I feel for your regarding quarantine. I had to live in a room for just 4 days last oct/early nov and although I was negative, IT SUCKED. I could feel myself start to devolve.



Urgent care got me a test (In NJ). No appointment.

Mix of both, but he rode with me, so I had a solid 4 hours of exposure in the truck. The urgent care in town allows testing without an appointment. I will go get tested later this week.

Scheduled one through my primary care provider for 1:30 tomorrow. That will be day 5 of initial exposure. If they do the rapid test, and it's negative, I'm getting another a few days later just to be sure. I was with him on Friday through Monday, so I should be at day 5 tomorrow right? He was short of breath Friday night, and we thought it was an anxiety attack.

Tomorrow is right in the sweet spot of 4-5 days to test.



I got a PCR test at my urgent care, ymmv about what they offer.



Would you go for the PCR over the rapid if you had a choice? I had the PCR, which pissed me off at the time but trusting the test when the result came in ended up being big, especially as I work in person out of the home.

Thanks man. I feel fine, but I'm so stressed about it that I've completely lost my apatite. Last thing I need to do right now too. Taking zinc, D3, and C.

I'm not sure what test they will do Thur. If it's PCR then I'm fine with a negative result, and feel safe to go back to the new normal we're all used to. If it's a rapid test and negative I may get another next Monday just to be safe.

You should have just let KAC do a discord call with her so she can get that authentic tech support flavor.

Actually, he's right to wait a little while. They recommend for the most accurate testing to wait at least a week after exposure before you get tested. I myself tested 4 days after exposure and was negative, but then 4-5 days after that I began to feel symptoms and got tested again...positive.

YMMV, but with me my symptoms started to appear around day 9-10 after exposure. I was so close to my two weeks of isolation that I thought I was in the clear and then...cough, and body aches started to creep in. I knew I had it then even before the second test.

Appetite loss is one of the symptoms...

Hope you are fine too but if you were in a truck for 4 hours with a covid positive friend I don't see how you wouldn't have it.

I don't see how I couldn't either. Gonna find out Thur if I don't start feeling like crud before then. When I get stressed out, I don't eat. I pushed the test back a day for good measure.

What's frustrating about it is the slow pace of the whole thing. It takes days/weeks after exposure before you feel it (or not if lucky). It takes weeks to get over it once you have it (or longer). It's not like the Flu where it hits you fast and hard (in a matter of hours with the flu, you know you have it but the flu only lasts 2-3 days.)
