Have you been tested for COVID-19?


Have you guys been tested yet for Covid 19? As more and more people are getting tested thought it'd be nice to see who here has been tested .

Nope. Hopefully anti-body tests will be available soon. Because I think I had COVID back in December.

I never got tested even when I was in close contact with my supervisor that just got back from spending 3 months in Iran and he ended up getting sick but luckily they did finally tested him and it came back negative.

My mom was telling me they are thinking this has been around for at least 3 years and out in California they are going to check tissues that they saved from dead bodies going back three years and test the tissue for antibodies.



Last February I came down sick for over a week with fever, fatigue, coughing, and didn't want to eat. Just wondering if I had it then. That was the first time I ran a fever since 1978 when I was hospitalized with a bad flu.

No but I'm curious about antibody testing myself. I'd like to know what percentage of the population has/had it and didn't know because they're asymptomatic. I'd also like to know if the illness I had earlier this year was Covid-19. I had a fever, sore throat, and an uncontrollable dry cough for over a week. I don't think I've been that sick since I had pneumonia as a kid.

It was a subliminable programming about oranges and Florida. That means Florida and The Corona. He virtually sent cyberanitbodies to defend against The CyberCorona.


I have not been tested, but I did get the flu shot this year, so it would be a bit more obvious if I have caught it.

Downstate is really hard hit so the test isn't available here yet, and probably will not be for...ever.

My contact with other people was extremely limited even before all this and I haven't had any unexplained illnesses in the past several months, anyway. My past two flulike illnesses occurred too early (late May/early June 2019, mid-October 2019) and both were confirmed as UTIs.

My stoma has been acting all kinds of weird since mid-March, though...

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Previously they were only testing hospitalised patients here. Now they've opened it up to more people but not the general public still. They've also been experimenting with antibody tests but none are accurate enough to bother with yet supposedly.

One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end

Haven't been tested. Doubt I will unless it's mandatory at some point.

Nope. I figured they were in short supply so never sought one. The public health advice was to avoid seeking a test unless symptomatic or in a high risk group, both of which I am not.

I can't imagine ever getting one any time soon unless I ever start getting horrible flu symptoms, then maybe they might give me one.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

I don't have any symptoms but my father has had a sore throat so he wanted to be sure. He's 74 and is in the high risk for getting it. He has diabetes and has had lung cancer and heart disease.

No.

I haven't had any symptoms. But I've been very careful because my dad is at extreme risk. Since February the only places I've been are the grocery store parking lot for no-contact pickups and driving my dad to hospital visits -- where they don't even allow visitors to go in with him anymore. Any time we go anywhere we have masks and latex gloves, and sanitize our gloves frequently, and wash our hands well after getting home and taking everything off. We don't take visitors or anything.

Funny how many people with alarming covid esque symptoms are struggling to get tested (some being essential workers with lots of human contact), while we hear dozens of cases of cats and dogs of wealthy people getting tested positive for it. And I would think positive cases of pets generally should make up for a very small portion of the total pets getting tested.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

No. And I'm not looking forward to it - especially when they shove that thing so far up your nose it'll feel like it's coming out the back of your head.

No. I did have a very bad cold in late February/early March. Nurse at my doctor's office said I didn't have the symptoms.
