I’ve done the saliva test, BJ, and can’t see any reason not to if you’re going in regularly. It takes about 5 seconds - most time consuming part is wiping the tube and table down afterwards - and is way less unpleasant than swabbing. That said, they’ve had about 6 positive results in total so far, so one does wonder about the sensitivity.

On the basis of this post I've gone and got myself some lateral flow kits. Might as well do it properly. Cheers.

Hope he's doing okay. Going for a covid test today actually, being feeling like I'm coming down with something these past few days.

They boy had a 104f fever overnight which kept us up, he’s had seizures at temperatures that high in the past which were fairly flippin terrifying. Spike in cases here as well in the last week since students came back to uni (I’m a grad student and have been to several in person events so err… uh oh).

Negative PCR tests for us both this morning and his temp seems to be stabilizing which is good. Never a dull moment!

I had it last week and it was pretty tough, several flu-like symptoms and I can attest to that one where your head hurts like a fucker each time you cough. Ears went all funny too. After about 3 days I started to feel better but on day 12 I still have blocked ears and I feel exhausted half way through the day. This is with a double jab too. For goodness sake get the jab.

Fucking hell. The first time I do anything other than go to work. Spend a weekend with friends and we all come back with it. I feel fine apart from a cough but obviously I know I'm a few days from hospitalisation. Fuck, I am so angry. I should have stayed at home.

My mum has told her school to shove it but has 6 more days of work. I’m a bit worried but think she’ll get away with it.

I exaggerated. I'm just holed up in the bedroom whilst me understandably pissed off wife delivers food like I'm a prisoner, but I don't feel ill at all. I do have a weird blocked ear, though. Sounds like I'm underwater. This is not a symptom I've read about.

I went to a wedding reception last Saturday and have been feeling ill ever since. Got a tickly cough now, can still smell and taste everything though. I keep doing tests and they keep coming back negative but I'm convinced I've got it.

Could be that I suppose, but I don't feel TERRIBLE, just a bit niggly cough phlegmy etc.

Felt really rough about a week ago, took a couple of days off werk, did a few lateral flow tests and got nothing but negative results. Just assumed it was "Freshers' Flu". October innit? People mingling more after lockdown, vaxxed but still spreading things that aren't Covid.

Exactly that. Just imagine what happens to your immune system if it has nothing to do for 18 months.

I’ve been feeling crap in some undefinable way. LFTs coming up negative though. I think I’m just generally wiped out.

Gotta say I do love the way that feeling a bit crap is now a socially acceptable excuse to take some time off werk, and isn't seen as illness = weakness. This always should have been the case and I'm loving this new reality.

We still have to take it unpaid at our place or SSP.  The new reality needs to be affordable to stick

Taking a few risks, beer festival at end of month, convention at end of next (latter has me the most concerned - more spacious venue due to covid but I've never returned from one without the "con lurgy").  Just feel that life has to go on, but fingers firmly crossed...
