  • Worst part is even if you test negative, it doesn't mean you're in the clear. You'll still be wondering for two weeks.

We need to do a telehealth call and hopefully she can get me into a clinic at the hospital tied to their practice for a test tomorrow. I hope. I feel OK. I can’t tell if some of the very very minor things I’ve been feeling are because I have it or are anxiety induced. I’m pretty freaked right now.
      Ugh. Sorry Scarlet.

      Important thing is to wait at least 4, preferably 5 days after exposure. False negatives are fairly high at 3 days.

      Keep in mind, haircuts are a relatively low risk activity As long as you both work a mask.

      We’ll be thinking of you the next several days...

      edit: oh! And keep in mind, someone is generally contagious between 2-3 days before symptoms. So that long prior to symptoms is another thing working in your favor.

          Thinking about you. Hopefully you will not have anything.

          Keep us informed the best you can.

              I'll keep you in my thoughts. And as someone else posted, it is preferable to wait for enough time to pass before testing. Since you are already at 6 days that's probably enough time. My original COVID-19 test was negative and I did it 4 days after my first confirmed exposure. Symptoms started the day I got the negative result and subsequently my next three tests were all positive.

              I know it is easy to say it and harder to do it, but try not to be too freaked out. If internet good thoughts, wishes and prayers mean anything, you'll have it licked even if you do test positive, which --fingers crossed -- hopefully you won't. Keep us posted.

                        • So, I called my doctor's office a little after 8:00am. the admin who answered the call asked me if I was having any symptoms. When I told her no, she said they weren't scheduling telehealth calls for people not exhibiting symptoms. Umm, OK? I asked if I could go get tested somewhere on my own, she said absolutely, to go to Mass.gov. to find a location.

                          I search on the Mass.gov site. There's an urgent care place across the street. I tried to schedule an appointment, none available. Searched a few other places, finally found a CVS Minute Clinic with an appointment on Sunday at 3:00. Confirmed it. For the heck of it, I tried to find another location that may have an appointment sooner.

                          While I was doing that (with no luck), the on-call doctor I spoke with last night called me. Said he thought that if they didn't get me into the testing site at the hospital, they have a satellite location. I told him the admin didn't even let me have a telehealth call. He overrode that decision, said he was putting in the order at the hospital for me to get tested. They just called, I'm going at 3:00pm today. Whew. What a frustrating experience.

                          I suppose I should call my dentist to cancel my appointment for 11/30. Regardless of whether I'm positive or negative, I think it's too close to not. I'm sure I'll be quarantining for some time.

                          • Boy, Kelly Stafford sure did step in it. The wife of Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford had to apologize after referring to Michigan as a dictatorship not once but TWICE in some social media post due to the governor's latest efforts at protecting Michigan citizens. If she is so concerned about a friend of hers losing her business maybe she could pony up some of the $142 million in guaranteed salary and bonus her husband got from the Lions so he could continue to be the best quarterback to never win a playoff game.

                            • 2,065 deaths yesterday - the first day > 2,000 since May 7th. The current average of 1,398 = 500k if it held for a year. And if current trends hold true 2k/day will be the moving average in 2 weeks. Really hoping that doesn't happen, but with Turkey day right around the corner....

                              And the President can't be bothered to address it at all because he has an election to steal and his sycophants are right along with him.

                                This is a constant battle, and since I know which practice this is (and that I help manage their systems and workflow), I will apologize for this. If it ever gets extremely frustrating let me know and I can reach out to the manager (she's awesome).

                                We set up an "Influenza-Like-Illness" clinic in Waltham that's designed for symptomatic patients and the occasional asymptomatic patient with confirmed exposures. They use the Abbott tests which have generally unacceptably high false negative rates, but a good first step anyway. I'm glad you're getting in. Please let me know if you have issues and I'll see what I can do for you (respectfully and privately, and I'll make sure I never see any of your PHI details).
