Yeah, so when the bf had it, the doctor told him that he didn’t need to test again after the quarantine period was up, saying that the tests can’t tell whether the virus is alive or dead. So basically same thing, that he might still test positive even after being in the clear.July 21, 2022 at 11:04 am #1110969hfantodsParticipant
See I also read that they only introduced the 5 day quarantine to get people back to work but you might still be shedding virus if you test positive on rapid tests. PCR tests might show you are positive long after you get COVIDJuly 21, 2022 at 11:15 am #1110970
Yeah, the husband did wait until he tested negative on the rapid to do anything. I should have clarified about the PCR vs. Rapid.
ETA: I quarantined for the full 10 days after my PCR test in January and didn’t test again.

I want to recommend this fake-ass blazer that you can throw on if you’re basically naked and look amazingly professional on zoom. I got it in white and need more colors. I get lots of compliments and look more pulled together than anyone. It’s not lined, is stretchy, and is actually quite comfortable!

Our Covid positive lines also faded it we progressed. No idea whether it means anything though. We were told that you can test positive on a PCR for months and not be contagious, but if you’re positive on a rapid test, you’re probably shedding the virus still.July 25, 2022 at 6:35 am #1112627LisforLeslieGuest
I was a real risk taker over the weekend. I went to the movies.
Ten am movie on a Saturday morning. I think we were the only two in the theater. There may have been a couple more people but I couldn’t see anyone.
Masked the entire time.
We saw Elvis. It was brilliant.July 27, 2022 at 2:49 pm #1112712RangerchicParticipant
@Kate – I added that blazer to my wish list. I don’t really have to dress up for work but it would still be fun and cute to have 🙂
I kind of want to see Nope in the theater…Maybe! We get popcorn so don’t wear a mask but we also usually go when the theater isn’t busy so I don’t worry too much.July 27, 2022 at 2:56 pm #1112714
I went to see the new jurassic world in the theater on a Tuesday over lunch. I think there were a total of six of us in the theater, everyone sitting far apart. After I got settled, I took my mask off during the show.July 27, 2022 at 3:14 pm #1112715LisforLeslieGuest
I’ll admit I did consider getting a big heaping popcorn on the way out. I miss movie theater popcorn.
Oh! And since it was the early early show tickets were a whopping $6. Do you know how long it’s been since I paid $6 for a movie ticket? I think it’s been over 20 years.July 27, 2022 at 3:17 pm #1112716
I got popcorn! And my friend and I got cocktails. It was so much fun.
Occasionally, my fam will go to the theater solely to purchase popcorn (no movie). And we eat at home while watching a movie. If you get a hankering, def try it sometime.July 29, 2022 at 3:07 pm #1112727RangerchicParticipant
@KTfran – we recently splurged (a little) on surround sound for our living room. The only thing missing when watching a movie is movie theater popcorn – I can’t seem to duplicate it at home so I’m going to try that next time!
We also have a movie theater here I think it’s called Picture Show and the tickets, no matter the time of day, are something like $5-$6 per person. And they still have the nice seats!
