I'm sorry to hear of folks getting sick, hope everyone recovers quickly.

I did 2 home tests a day apart after getting back, both were negative. Since those tests aren't as good, I'll get a proper test at work tomorrow to be sure.

FWIW, I am fully vaxxed and have had the boosters twice.

Let's be careful out there...

Glad that you are doing well Bryan. It seems this latest virus is puzzling in who it affects. I also am fully vaxxed and double boosted, but it got me. My son shared a room with me at STAR and has been unaffected. The only difference is that David got the original Covid 19 before the vaccines were available and has since been twice vaxxed and twice boosted.

Well, we both tested positive, me last night and Denise this morning. The Mayo Clinic system has a injection through a vein that can be given if minor symptoms and within the first 2 days, unhospitalized. It has been used on over 250,000 people with good results. It is supposed to help in the recovery process and ward off major symptoms, before they get out of hand, especially poor breathing and oxygen deficiencies.
We went this morning for me to receive the injection, and while there, they asked Denise if she would like it also. She only had a small cough. I had a cough and sore all over last night, but went away with Advil.
Now we have to wait 60 days before we can get the 2nd booster.

Hope everyone else is doing good.

I am doing very well today and should be back to normal (or as normal as I ever get ;D) in another day. My oxygen never did get below 97 and is 99 today, so it evidently didn't affect my lungs.

I’m sorry to say that I tested positive, too. Is anyone keeping a list?

It started Thursday with a mild sore throat and the symptoms have been minor, so far.

Wishing everyone infected a speedy recovery.

I'm possibly one of the to Mat Mogavero referred to above. Started coughing on Wednesday, rode home Thursday with continued coughing, slight headache and beginning to feel the chills, tested positive when I got home. Called the doctor Friday morning, got the Paxlovid that afternoon and started taking it in the evening. Today I think I'm starting to feel better and may even ride to the drug store to pick up a prescription at the driveup window.

For those who have tested positive after STAR, has anyone gotten a negative test since then? I first tested positive on Friday, June 24 and am feeling fine today, but still testing positive. Just wondering how long one would expect to test positive after initial positive test.

From what I've been told by my Dr. and from reading, it's not unusual to test positive for as long as 2-3 months. But you can have some assurance that 5 or so days after your symptoms have disappeared, you will not pass the virus along to anyone else.
I got tested one more time after several days of no symptoms and still tested positive.

That is my experience also. I'm feeling fine (or a good as usual) and still tested + today. Current protocol at work is 5 days of quarantine after testing + and mask up. I'm still on vacation from after STAR so it won't be an issue there. But it sure is discouraging to see the 2 lines show up.   TM

Here is what Mayo Clinic sent to me when I asked that same question.
 "You could test positive for as long as 90 days (but not likely). You are no longer considered contagious. Please follow your local health department regarding quarantine and isolation guidelines. Most local health departments will tell you to isolate for the first 5 days from when symptoms started then you may go out in public with a mask on for the next 5 days until the 10 day period is over, then you are in the clear."
