We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

It's probably your lymph node. Those swell when your body is fighting an infection, etc.

I didnít understand this as a teacher when our year started. But the reason why is Peteís son could get Covid anytime up to 10 days from now from him. But it could take him as much as 14 days to show symptoms. Thatís where the 24 comes from. Itís pretty standard among all health departments.

It's 10+14 unless I isolate 100% from him which I am doing and it is killing me.

Yeah it's the parotid gland. And my smell and taste are completely gone now.

I was NOT being political. I was speaking of China (the country). I would call that a geographical comment, maybe borderline Geopolitical.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Pete is infectious for 10 days. His child could catch the 'rona at any point within that 10 days if he's in contact with him, even at day 10. It can take 3-4 days for the virus to manifest. So child could catch it on day 10, then manifest the virus on day 14, then be contagious all the way until day 24.

It sucks and seems counterintuitive, but the logic is sound.

Right but my health system and Wife's work are both starting the 10 days from day of symptom onset. So both of us can go back to work on Tuesday provided we have no symptoms.

My Son's school is trying to say the same but they are fudged a little. I will say this, you buy yourself time if you have symptoms because the 10 day clock starts on that day. If you are asymptomatic the clock starts the day sof your test results.

I didn't get my results until almost 6 days after symptom onset. So that actually bought me time in the long run.

Doc is calling in some antibitoics to hopefully take down the swelling in my gland.

And just FTR, I have been fairly diligent about wearing a mask. If I had to guess I either got it from a particular co-worker or from the gym. But really wtf knows?


But as long as I feel good I go back to work Tuesday and my Wife's work said same for her as long as she has no symptoms and she doesn't even need to eb tested.
Huh? Only 6 days? I thought the quarantine time was 14 days. Or am I way behind? Admittedly, I haven't been following very closely the past few months.

Edit: NM, I just needed to keep reading subsequent posts.

Pete, do you mind if I ask how are you isolating from your son? I mean, I assume you both live in the same household. Or is it like a divorce situation?
