COVID-19: It’s Personal

On Monday, June 22, I received a positive test for the SARS-CoV2 virus that causes COVID-19 disease. I had no symptoms, but my brother was coming through town and wanted to visit. Usually he stays with us. Is this safe? Who knows. We agreed to both get tested. His test and my wife’s tests were negative. A friend who is a med lab tech said, my positive and my wife’s negative doesn’t make any sense. The nurse who called said they are seeing a 10% false positive rate. So am I infected or not? My brother went on without seeing us. I’m self-quarantining for the moment. I continue to have no symptoms a week after the test. I certainly will retest two weeks after the initial test. Maybe I won’t go out shopping or for dinner until I have at least one negative test. My cancer doctor won’t see me until I’ve had two negative tests at least 24 hours apart.

More of the dishes are going into the dishwasher that runs a lot hotter than hand dishwashing. And we run it more often. I’m staying in for today.
