So who is Covid Positive?

OneLostArchitect

A lot of people are getting infected. I was infected last year... but a lot of friends and family are getting infected right now... How is your office handling business? They still dragging us in the office!

Due to the holidays, a spike is no surprise and hopefully a steep decline as people return to the same old routine. As some kids are returning to school, they are more likely to be the ones passing it along. Not much anyone can do but try their best to avoid unnecessary gatherings.

I was infected in January 2021. Ten days of feeling like crap, then another two months until I felt 100% again. This was pre-vaccine obviously.

I was fully vaccinated when I got Covid. Now I am boosted

I ended up getting it the beginning of last week. Had about 2 days of feeling bad, then it was just a regular cold. Worked from home until the 10 day quarantine was up & then headed back into the office. Seems like a lot of people either got it or had a family member get it over the holidays. Doesn't help that its cold / flu season too, hard to tell the difference.

Business is operating as usual.

For my office, it has been open for anyone who is vaccinated and wants to come in, but they are pushing to get everyone back in a few days each week as mandatory. That was supposed to happen after New Years, but they made the decision to delay the timeline for it. Not sure when it will happen now. There was a positive case in the office before the holidays but I don't know that it spread to anyone else. Not going into the office myself, I only heard about it from coworkers who were contacted by HR as needing to get a test from their contact tracing.

No positives for me or the family (yet?), but we did have a suspiciously bad cold of some type go through the entire family way back in late February and early March 2020 when no one knew that there was already community transmission, and tests were only for those who had traveled to China or been in close contact with some who had. I honestly don't think it was C-19, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was.

I had a weird cold in the beginning of February 2020 and I'm slightly suspicious it was a mild case of Covid. No way to know for sure, though.

Similar to tduds... but worse and earlier. A strange, longlasting, kickass flu (?) in November of '19. Absolutely killer for two weeks or more, a week of which was silent due to laryngitis, which I never get. What the hell is this? I wondered the whole time. Probably too early for the Big C, but the more I read the more I wonder.

Miraculously no one in my immediate family has been infected yet (as far as we know... thanks non-existant testing). We're being extra cautious and hoping for the best.

My office was supposed to re-open Feb 1st as a full time hybrid model, but as of yesterday that's been officially & indefinitely delayed. Fine with me, I love working from home. Kinda miss some of my coworkers though.

Data: 825,000 US dead in 2 yrs because of covid. More than any war we've been in. That isn't the flu. Covid deaths exploded into the #3 spot for yearly deaths behind heart disease & cancer. And the choice to not vaccinate is front/center in those numbers. The data is overwhelming & it's posted daily in every news source all over the world tracking the cases/deaths/hospitalizations.

Please take your arguments to another thread. This is the one for people saying they've got it & how they are dealing afterwards.

Regardless of the news form all sides and vaccination rates, we still gotta remember there are those who can't get anything and are still vulnerable. Not the willingly unvaccinated for whatever reason but the unable. This stuff is all talk until someone you know/care about ends up in a hospital--or you directly cause someone to be there. Avoid the guilt and risk, avoid the callous behavior. Certain countries don't even have vaccines, blame the patents and crap for that. They can't even choose to refuse.

If we're comparing it to the flu, the same would still apply: avoid people so you don't spread to them. The overlap of those susceptible to the annual flu is also in this COVID group. Nothing has fundamentally changed in terms of mitigating transmission or managing behavior to benefit everyone.

I know it's the job of the creative class not to entertain subtlety, nuance, and complexity but rather to quash the afore mentioned at first encounter with censorship, cynicism, and the biting take on reality which really is their hallmark, and yet I can't quite express the relief I find in turning to the community forums on archinect. I mean, really, with the rest of the world pointing to the footnotes in the peer reviewed research and scientific publication while shouting that nobody seems to read and comprehend what comes after the asterisk (but everyone likes to pretend they do), it's nice to find this place outright shutting down the observation of footnotes altogether. We need this to happen somewhere; we really do. I just don't see hateful, sneering, ignorance posed as intellectualism leading the charge anywhere else these days. Thanks, and please specify asbestos in all building materials and products.

I'm still in the clear as far as I know. My brother caught it (despite double vaxx) but he's 2000 miles away, in a different country. 


We had no cases of positive staff until two weeks ago. At least five people seem to have caught it. All of us are at least double vaxxed (requirement to be in the office). One person who caught it has immune system issues that have caused her symptoms to last longer than usual, but besides the typical tiredness and loss of her voice, she's on the mend. Everybody else either had no symptoms or has fully recovered.

I just got notice some clients I met with this week tested positive. We were all masked during the meeting so I’m hoping it was a near miss. Gonna have to test next week and find out. No symptoms yet.

The in-laws tested positive last week when their eldest son visited and he had some spare tests with him. They’re all double jabbed and my mother-in-law already boostered. None had any symptoms and still nothing…hope that was it for them, both 70+.
Some kids and parents tested positive during Christmas lockdown here from the class of my eldest who will start school again on Monday.


and I’m sitting and waiting my 15minutes now after receiving my booster shot:

Caught it 11 days before my booster appointment bc The Netherlands is so f**ing slow (AGAIN) - why can we not do the boosting BEFORE the holidays? The one time in 2 years we hang out with the family... I already knew it would end this way...good riddance. The cold I caught off a kid the week before Covid was worse than the Covid. I'm glad for the vaccines, but sick of the imposed vaccine timelines here and tired of the lockdowns. Lets open up again and move on...mask requirement can stay! Now I have to wait 3 months for the booster.


I was also dead sick for 3 weeks in Feb 2020 after a trip to London...either a really horrid flu, or...Covid. Will never know...

ps. home rapid tests work! use them!

So far only my arm hurt a little from the booster…when I got COVID at the beginning of the pandemic felt a lot worse for a day or two.

Hmm, my booster only caused relatively mild pain at the injection site for a day or two. My second original jab was the worst of the 3 - very noticeable shoulder pain and pretty much slept for 2 days.

So funny how we all experienced these shots differently. For me the first shot (Pfizer) was the most chill, mild soreness on my arm. Second shot (Pfizer) had me in bed with chills for about 12 hours. Booster (switch to Moderna) had me in bed with fever/chills much faster and for a bit longer (maybe 18-24 hours before I was feeling over it).

I've dodged this like The One, and have zero reactions to the vaccinations. I've been vaxxed up the ass this year; two covid shots, shingles vax, flu vax, and a tetanus vax. The only thing I haven't found a vax for? Anger.

As far as I know, I have managed to avoid infection with all variants so far (I have enough ongoing upper respiratory issues with my allergies that it's imaginable I might have had a mild case and just not noticed).

I jumped in line for my vaccination at the first available opportunity (only time in my life I've been grateful for being morbidly obese, since it got me in a bit earlier than others) and just got the booster last week. I have not been obsessive about masking or social distancing, but have more-or-less followed the posted protocols. I'm also a pretty introverted guy to start with, so my normal level of interaction with the world wasn't too far off from the social distancing recommendations.
