From: Mass. USA. now in OHIO
Ona personal note, after sheltering at home for nine days, I want back to work Friday. Unfortunately, this morning I awoke with mild cold symptoms, a stuffy head, cough and dihrrea. I'm praying it's only a spring cold and not the virus, but it means I'm sequestered at home again until it runs its course.
Hans, FWIW I was surprised to see that upper respiratory cold-like symptoms are a rarity in COVID-19 cases. Stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing and diarrhea are seen in only something like 5% of the cases. Fingers crossed for you.
Slept most of the day and took some Petpo pills for the runs. Head is less congested and cough is almost non-extistant. Was/is nothing serious.
Both employer and brother were all over me to 'get tested'. Didn't think it was necessary and would have wasted a limited resource.
Did some checking online regarding local testing and criteria. A local HC provider is setting up drive through testing locations, but test kits are limited in number and all facilities may not have sufficient stock. Recommendations are IF one has a fever and shortness of breath, one should call to get directions on how to proceed and plan on getting tested.
I have neither of the criteria symptoms, but will play hell now convincing my employer I'm OK to go back to work without a clean bill of health from some one official.
Glad you're feeling better Hans....GP
