    Re: COVID Resource thread- places to get resources, information or help

    Tried to find this on the CDC and WHO FAQ, but was not sure about the CDC thing...

    The question is how infectious is someone who had COVID19, and for how long. The CDC says this:
    Current CDC guidance for when it is OK to release someone from isolation is made on a case by case basis and includes meeting all of the following requirements:

    The patient is free from fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
    The patient is no longer showing symptoms, including cough.
    The patient has tested negative on at least two consecutive respiratory specimens collected at least 24 hours apart.
    Someone who has been released from isolation is not considered to pose a risk of infection to others.
    Now that is to just remove from isolation. Wondering how long until doctors are reasonably confident that the sick person will no longer spread.

    Saw some interesting simulations about why social distancing works, and the time it take to go from infected to sick to non transmittable is different for everyone. But it would be interesting to know how long after symptoms are you no longer spreading. Once the recovered population gets high enough, that pushes the possible strain on the hospitals down quite a bit. The models were interesting, as a concept.

  • COVID Resource thread- places to get resources, information or help

    Starting this thread because there are thousands of posts on other sites with information on resources for help, free streams, virtual experiences, etc. Thought it might be a good way to share. This is NOT at thread for flaming, discussion of whether you agree with measures being taken. There are at least 2 threads for that (one more sane than another).

    Do you have a favorite?

    Please feel free to share stuff you find. Please do not get nasty at each other. I hope for no pony moments in here.

    Oh, and be safe!!
