Roche and Quest are two of the good ones, supposedly. Did they do a blood draw or was it just a finger prick test?

At quest and it was a vial of blood they took

I think they're probably backed up. We downloaded the quest app to check our results but they're still processing.

test results say we do NOT have covid antibodies. That sucks.

Bummer

I wonder what you had a few months ago?

I had influenza B in February. Went to the hospital and was tested with a swab of the back of my nose(not fun).

I was also one of the people who had a strange illness/virus in November. Never underwent any testing, was told it was a virus and to stay home. Felt crummy for 2 weeks, aches, feverish, and a stiff neck with bouts of pain. Went to the doctor again after my birthday and he "diagnosed" strep throat, was never tested for it. A week of taking amoxicillin later and I finally felt normal.

Never thought I'd say this to someone I didn't dislike. But... I'm sorry you never had COVID19.

Yup, my wife and I were sick last Jan. She was run down and had a cough for 'bout 3 weeks. My cough was worse but started later than hers so after my 2 weeks we both went to the doctor to make sure it wasn't bronchitis or walking pneumonia... They said both our lungs were clear and that it'd just been a bad year for flu...

Just 'cause 'rona's going around -- all the other things we got sick from before are still out there...

IF we have another bad flu season this could get way worse.
I was watching some mathematics stuff about covid and if folks don't do some distancing and ppe in a widespread effort we're in for a lot more death.

I'm considering liquidating some assets and holing up in a wanderlodge for a year far from the city.

Tis my hope to have the murder bus a viable pub (and renamed...) on wheels by then!

Been hard to be motivated about a social-event-oriented bus build in these times...

That's the opposite of my plan though. I'm all for the lockdown. Ga is opened up and I'm ticked off about it.

Charlie was hoping he had the antibodies already. But doesn't. That's what my comment was about.

Always good to get out in front of that sort of thing.
