Thanks, doctor.

Since my positive test Oct. 24, still not one symptom.
Our former neighbor in the nursing home, age 90, positive test, asymptomatic, too, while neighbors around her died from it. When the outbreak occurred she wore a facemask in her room.
As I tried to figure out what might happen to me, I read an article that said perhaps 40% of infected persons are asymptomatic. This is encouraging and discouraging. It highlights the real danger of asymptomatic spread. Healthy appearing people with no cough, and no apparent symptom, who carry it will infect you.
I wore a facemask when I was exposed to clients who later tested positive. My elderly clients didn't wear facemasks when I was present in their home. At the time they did not know they had it.
Epidemiologists are saying that if you wear a facemask and are infected the facemask can reduce the viral load, and your symptoms if you become infected. Wear a facemask.
I am not going through another two-week period with no staff in my office, so a "facemasks required" sign is going up when the office is reopened to clients next week.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

You apparently don't know much about CDawg (or much of anything about this virus).

Pretty much an aside, but it would be nice to see more focus on giving people a working knowledge of evolution and biology in their education.

You are welcome.  I am so rarely called that though, it sounds weird.

If you emphasize one thing more, you deemphasize something else, like say early Phoenician history or something.

And of course, some people are highly resistant to learning anything about some topics.

It's the Devil.

There is some fairly significant chance it was a false positive, unless you were retested.  Saban had one.

I still don't know how often that happens, and it depends on the specific test used.

The false happen with the rapid tests. Not too many happen with the swab tests.

Glad you are doing well. I'm sure the positive result freaked you out a bit, so it's good it didn't develop into something severe.
