Please don’t turn this political so it can stay in the lounge for a bit because not everyone goes down to the dungeon.

Do you know where and from who you got the virus from? Do you know if you spread it to someone?
This could help to stay away from the China flu.

I tested positive a week after getting back from Key west last year. Becky who I went with did not get it. and all the peeps that I was hanging out with didn't either. so may have got it after I got home.

San Antonio Rodeo Late Feb 2020..sickest I've ever been in my life. Sold the remaining days. I really think I had a second dose in November but didn't get tested again...we were in Havasu. The crushing chest pain happened both times.

My entire family got it on Christmas Eve, including my 86 year old grandma.

I got tested that day so I knew it wasn’t me bringing it to the party. I had a feeling this was going to happen and was openly against the gathering to be honest. BUT, I just wanted to make sure that if it did happen and grandma died It wasn’t me that brought it, lol!

Everyone ended up fine and fought it with no complications or hospitalizations.

March of 2020...in Cancun.
We went with a group of friends from my wife's work...I am pretty sure it was brought by one of them to Cancun. But I think 13 of the 26 of us that went all tested positive about a week after we returned.

You've already got it and are going thru "week 1". I don't think the vax will help you with anything thats going on now. If it makes you feel better, My family had it in July '20 and we have been exposed like 10 times (that I know of for sure, some of them "major exposures") and we haven't gotten it again since. 13 months lasting immunity.

More than likely from someone at work. Had it January 2021 along with wife and son. Wife no symptoms. Son felt crappy no taste or smell.
Myself no taste or smell. Even now somethings just don't taste or smell the same.

I don't know. Went to the Emergency Room for an unrelated problem and tested positive. That set in motion a weeks worth of nonsense that was worse than the reason I went in the first place. I think if my primary doctor had not been able to get me out the hospital they would have killed me.

I haven’t had it either. Didn’t wear a mask, washed my hands as normal, hung out at bars and restaurants that didn’t close. Got the jab in May.

I haven't had it. I wore my mask, washed my hands and got the vaccine as soon as I could.

I haven’t had it either. I only wore my mask when I had to, traveled by air, never washed my hands, gambled in casinos, got haircuts, ate in restaurants (that were open in spite of the shutdowns) went to parties, hugged people and worked out in the gym. Finally got vaxxed on Sunday.

As far as I know, I haven’t had it.

Don’t know. Best guess is flying back from Hawaii. Been vaxxed. Zero symptoms until I got a wicked cough. We’re talking 5 star lung oysters. Went to doc, got tested. Over it in about a week and a half.

Late October early November 2019. No idea how or where I was exposed. Shit hit me like a ton of bricks while on a job pouring concrete. Had a fever on and off for the better of a month. Every time I tried to go back to work I almost fainted. Given the timing, my doctor didn't know what the hell I had. So I was fucked and on my own.

My work requires testing one to three times a week or find other work . So after 22 years at the same job it's a little late to start a new career .

the vax doesn’t do shit. Antibodies is the only real cure.

Similar..went to the doctor about a week in and he asked me some very detailed questions. He and some of his cohorts had been watching since april/may of others with familiar symptoms.

Was prescribed HCQ and Demexasomethingorother, a shot of b vitamins and electrolytes. 3-4 days later I was more or less fine save for massive lung butter for another couple days.

Funny thing as a wise old doctor who has seen a lot said something is coming and it is going to be a complete shit show. Two months later he prophetically 100% correct.

From my loving wife that’s shares everything with me. We can only predict she got it at the supermarket, fully masked and all.

My wife got it and my entire office got it. I'm the only one that drives a Ford and I didn't get it. Doesn't answer the OP question but I felt compelled to make my point.

Super Bowl Sunday 2020. I was gassed for about three days and then every 24 hours after I was incrementally better.

Can’t drink Coors Light anymore. Shit tastes like metal ever since. Weirdest damn thing.

Sick and tired of Covid restrictions, July 2020 I started researching countries that didn’t have Masks or Lockdowns, there were very few, I also had to research my route to make sure it was even possible to get there due to entry and layover restrictions.

Tanzania quickly became the only viable option, flying via Dubai. Early august I put my notice in at work and purchased a one way ticket thinking I would maybe stay there one month. I had some previous experience in Africa but never this country in particular.

Landing was like stepping back In time, but not to far back in time, just pre-covid. I spent the next three months traveling the country end to end unrestricted, and meeting like-minded travelers.

Three months in and after an attempted robbery deep in the country I decided it was time to go, Uganda was opening its boarders, It was close by, I had previous experience in this country and the visa was easy to get so I booked the ticket.

I planned to stay in Uganda only two weeks, it had some odd Covid restrictions, and the police just used them to shake down people for money. Overall things were good, the bars and restaurants owned by government people were open with no masks or anything, establishments owned by private citizens were not so lucky.

At one of the nicer places in town I ended up in the “VIP” section, bottles were flowing, shots where being had, but there weren’t enough shot glasses, I believe this is where I contracted Covid, no one knew who’s shot glass was who’s, I was their guest, and I didn’t want to be rude.

A couple days later I was getting a PCR test for a flight to Brazil, I paid for expedited results but they where late, I called and they were acting strange on the phone, they kept saying they would send them in 10 minutes, hours later I was angry, I demanded they send the results, they did, in red letters I read POSITIVE.

I couldn’t believe it, and they wouldn’t give me any details of the results over the phone. I had no symptoms, I thought something must be wrong, four days later I tested again thinking it must be a false positive, POSITIVE my results read again.

So I continued my self imposed quarantine in my non air conditioned 10 dollar hotel room, 2 weeks later I finally tested negative. I was more than ready to leave africa at that point. A great time in my life though.

Yea, what’s up with the metallic taste of some things? I got it in havasu a year ago April. No sense of smell or taste for about two weeks, and same deal. CL tastes like the can. Fuggin weird.

At work along with about 20 other employees, we were all required to wear masks too😂 what a joke…

My girlfriend got a cough but never got tested, she also kept going to work and no one at her work caught it, she doesn’t wear a mask at work…

Late November 2020, from the wife, she has a hair salon, had a lady ( that works in a medical office) who had a red runny nose, but assured her that it wasn't covid, just a sinus infection. Two days later wife was sick, three days later I was. I think there is something to the "15 minutes exposure", as opposed to just walking through a store or such. We both felt like crap for 5 days, I had low energy for 4 months, and I still can't smell or taste. It was/is bad enough that we didn't want any more of it, at that time noone could decide/agree on the antibody immunity deal, so we got Pfizerized as soon as we could, in April...

Thanksgiving week last year. Doing a rehab and had a meeting with the customer. She and her mother were staying in a hotel during the renovations. She thinks that's where she got it. My wife didn't catch it from me, but my neighbor did.

Took vicodin for the back pain and Dayquil for the cold symptoms. Over it quickly. I spent one afternoon in bed.

At the PRI trade show in December 2019 or on the flight home... The "official" timeline is BS, it was out in China in Sept. 2019! I have had it twice already now that I know of, second time was in June of 2020. Employee had a heart attack and tested positive. (Not related to heart attack, he has heart issues from years of drug use back in the day) I had the entire shop do all three tests and actually had to write them all notes because back then they wouldn't test without symptoms. All came back with antibodies but 6 of us were asymptomatic carriers.
