That sounds crazy. How many do you go through per day? Don't you have to change it every 30 minutes or so, to avoid it getting wet?

Just asking. I've still yet to wear one. But I'm thinking if it gets wet anyway it's probably counterproductive to wear one.

Not too big of a deal, they supply them for us. We have actually had to wear them doing certain daily tasks in the 15 years I have been there. So while we wear them every day now, I am used to wearing them because at least 2-3 days a week we had to wear them anyway doing certain tests in the lab. I've never had a problem with one getting wet. When I am done with it I just throw it away. The neck gaiters are stretchy material and I have about 10 of those. I like those better and I just throw it in the laundry at the end of the day.

This past Tuesday I finally received a negative test result. The doctor told me I was definitely asymptomatic. I'm finally getting to return to work this weekend.

Well, this Covid sh*t just got real for me.

My 17 year old son had to get a covid-19 test this morning.

One of his friends, who graduated from high school last year and has been home on leave from the Marine Corps, tested positive before he was due to return to the USMC. So now everybody that this kid has been in contact with while he's been home for the past ten days, which includes my son and about a dozen other friends, had to go get the test.

My son is buggin' the f*** out. We will be on pins & needles for the next couple of days till we find out the results.

Man FF I hate the hear that. Hopefully it will come back negative. The tests they are doing around here are the rapid tests. It sucks that you gotta wait a few days.

I was exposed to a co-worker. I had direct contact with him the day he was feeling sick but I had on a mask and latex gloves at the time and was having a conversation with him about 8 feet away. We have to wear our masks at work all the time now unless we are sitting at our desk. I only had latex gloves on at the time because the work I was doing required them.

^^ my son Matt and his best friend Nick went together to get the rapid test yesterday, amd tjeu came back negative.

However, the doc told them that the rapid test isn't always 100 percent accurate and recommended they also do the 2 day/swab test just to make sure, so that's the result they're waiting on right now.

My wife is a home health aide who works with the elderly, so my son's afraid to come home until he gets the all clear, for fear of passing it to my wife and then potentially to her client. Fortunately, Nick's family are letting Matt stay at their house till their results come back.

My wife and Nick's Mom were messaging each other last night -- they both agree that the boys are probably freaking out over nothing and the odds of either of them getting a positive are slim, but on the other hand, maybe this will be a wake up call for both of them.

They have been hanging out together all thru the pandemic, which was fine at first cuz it was just the two of them, but the longer this has gone on they've been pushing their luck, expanding the circle of people they let into "the bubble" so to speak, so this was probably bound to happen sooner or later.

This is serious stuff and I think you maybe right about your son, but the fact your son is taking this serious and not wanting to pass it on to his mother and her patients shows what a responsible young man he is

The big thing for us is our diabetic daughter. The poor kid hasn't left the house since March. We have gone outside and walked around the block but she hasn't been anywhere since this started. My wife was working in the school system but opted not to return so she has been home the whole time as well. She said even if there was a 1 percent chance she could get it and bring it home she would not go back to work. Apparently other teachers thought the same thing as the district is trying to hire a ton of teachers all over the county. She said when this blows over she'll apply again but wasn't hopeful. I told her as many people as they need they would be glad to have her back even if it wasn't until next year.

Our oldest daughter (19) has ventured out some. She goes shopping with me on the weekend and she drives over to the FSU campus a day or two a week but she also doesn't want to bring it home. All of her classes but one are online, one on campus.

The only one that goes anywhere is me but I always wear my gaiter when I go out.

I bought some here:

They aren't the greatest thing but they are better than nothing and they are more comfortable than the N-95 masks.

My son's covid test came back negative, so he was able to come home yesterday after spending a week camped out at his buddy Nick's house. Peace has thus been restored.
