That's awful, I hope you remain negative. Your story is a microcosm of this whole situation. People who think they can do whatever they want without any regard for how that affects others.

Hope all will clear up on your side, Hewson. This must be infuriating. People can be the worst. I think if you avoided getting too close and he was masked up you will be fine in all likelihood, but I know the anxiety until you get the result... Take good care.

Hoping for a quick, negative result Hewson.

I understand your frustration. We did everything right and it was our 5-year-old who got it at school. Just cruel while all these people have been congregating for family gatherings and parties all along.

Great news!

There is an active case at my daughter's daycare, but not in her cohort. Many parents kept their kids home, but when I dropped her off this morning, they were like "here comes T with her antibodies".

Got my first dose of the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine yesterday. About a third of the staff at my hospital have had their first dose since Tuesday when we started, so fairly decent going.

Just have to wait and see when I get my second dose.

Have felt absolutely fine other than a fairly sore arm. A few other nurses and docs have had a pretty rubbish feeling (fluey, slight fevers) day after it initially but have then been grand second day on.

All my doctor and nurse friends have gotten their first shot and all reported a pretty sore arm.

I'm going to have one hell of a sparsely attended rager after getting this thing.
