Been feeling tired and listless for over a week. Took myself to the hospital. Did a whole battery of tests. I have the virus.
Self quarantine for two weeks fluids and rest.

Sorry to hear that Bill, have a quick recovery. Any thoughts on how you picked it up?

Oh wow Bill, so sorry to hear that, hope you have a mild case and recover quickly!
Any idea where you might have gotten exposed? With the country wide up takes in cases, I've been thinking a lot that we always think we are careful but it seems many are getting ' Covid fatigue' and perhaps not being as vigilant with precautions like when this started. We have friends, a young family with a 10 month old, both parents went back to work. The dad was on a construction job where one of the drywall guys informed the contractor he tested positive. The contractor then had everyone get tested and the young dad was also positive, without any symptoms, which came a day or two later so he unknowingly passed it on to his wife and baby. Other family members, grandparents, aunts and uncles etc., had been visiting them recently too so all got tested but were ok. It was a wake up call for the entire extended family that had relaxed their precautions. Had one of the older health compromised members gotten it, it could have been devastating. It was a good reminder for all of us. We can't assume someone is OK, especially if they have returned to work, you can't place trust in what precautions their workmates or others around them take.
