Get yourself tested...
« on: June 23, 2022, 09:41:07 PM »

I am really sorry to have to make such a confession, but after getting home today from MO and feeling like I had a slight fever, I took one of the home COVID tests. Alas, it came up positive. My wife also tested and was negative. She's going to stay with friends for a few days while I sit here all alone.

Like many of us at STAR, we were chatting up each other pretty good. I'd hate to think that we were a "super spreader" group, but I didn't see but a small handful of folks masked up. If you start to feel a bit wonky, get tested and then quarantine if needed.

I'll get a professional test tomorrow, but frankly, I doubt the results will be any different.

Dang!! Double Dang!!

For the record I've been double inoculated and boosted. When many of my friends around here were getting sick, I've cruised right through until now.

Well, funny you mention that. My roommate Dale Hall also tested positive. When he started to feel bad I got another room and he isolated himself. I got him a test kit and he tested +. He is still at the hotel really feeling bad and not doing well, he will wait a few days before trying to ride home. I tested myself when I got home and am -. I will test again tomorrow.  So there ya having folks, it ain't over til it's over!!!   TM

I just got a message from John Henry, HUBraking and he also tested positive when he got home but is feeling good. Robert test negative. They talked to many MSTA Members, so we better pass the word to get tested.

We just completed our tests, and we tested negative for Covid.

I was at a conference from work last week, one of my co-workers had a really raspy voice, said he got a scratchy throat bothering him after the first night in the hotel. When he got home on Friday he tested and was positive. I took 2 tests over the next few days and was negative.

I hope everybody avoids any serious issues and that most who test are negative. This stuff isn't gone and most people at most larger gatherings are going without masks, which is fine. I saw one of our vendors wearing a mask, a few staff at the hotel too. Just have to make sure you get tested quickly if not feeling right.

I felt ok yesterday morning when I left, but by the time I got home after a 3 hour ride in the heat I didn't feel very good. Thought it must be the effects of the heat. Sore throat, cough and upper body aches today but I tested positive.

Oooooh Noooooo!! Does this make us no better than the folks at Sturgis??  LOL Percentage-wise we might.
Best to all and let's hope this doesn't get too bad. TM

I'll retest the middle of next week which will be 6-7 days after I first noticed I was congested.

The people I spent the most time around, including my roommate at STAR, have all tested negative. So maybe I didn't share it with anyone else. I'll gain a little consolation from that.

If this crap is still around next year and I'm doing registration again, perhaps being masked during those days wouldn't be a terrible idea.

There were 8 reported positives posted on the Facebook MSTA STAR 22 page. These 2 may bring the total to 10.

Kudos to President Pat and his team along with all volunteers who helped with STAR ‘’22.  I also thought the staff/employees at the hotel went “above and beyond”.
Cape Girardeau folks friendly and nice too.
I agree with Mickey completely. I thought the staff was super.

Once or twice I even had area people wave me by them when I was behind them. Maybe they didn't like me riding right behind them, but it was me that appreciated it more than they didn't like something.

Update News: I'm Tom McKiernan and you're Not!  I tested positive this morning after feeling some symptoms last night I test again today. Sooooo, I'm doing all the usual stuff and getting lots of sunshine. I have very mild symptoms but it's annoying after all this time doing everything I could short of becoming a hermit. I guess I'll ride by myself more. LOL
Update on Dale Hall: He's doing better and has left the Cape for home today.   Ain't this the $*)ts.  My goofy sense of humor is intact so that'll help me through this. Take care everyone,  TM

Add one more to the list of positive. I started with a cough several hours ago and the past hour or more, felt tired and a little warm. Took the test and tested positive.
Denise still feels good. She tested negative about noon today.
We both have had 2 vaccines and one booster and scheduled for 2nd booster on Tuesday. Guess that won't happen.
Seems this Covid thing is picky on who gets it. 11 out of over 200 at STAR.
I felt good this afternoon and washed our ride and added a MSTA feature for this photo below.
