What is Covid-19? 

Covid-19 is an illness caused by a virus. This virus is a new coronavirus that has spread throughout the world. It is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person to person. You may even get this virus from animal to person. (source)

The ever-changing symptoms of Covid.

Covid, symptoms range from a fever, body aches, sore throat, cold symptoms, flu symptoms, nausea vomiting, cough dry or productive, and a headache. You can have one or many of these symptoms. Also, you may have no symptoms at all and still be courageous. 

Personal experience

In March 2020, my early symptoms were body aches and a sore throat, then it later progressed to a 103.3 fever with shortness of breath and an unproductive cough. I tested negative for the flu multiple times. I was left wondering if I had covid. Unfortunately, there were no covid tests in my area. 

Although, when I recently tested positive (January 2022), my symptoms were a runny nose, headache, and body aches. Luckily none of my family members got the virus and they are not all immunized. There were a few things I did to help protect my family. 

Testing for Covid If you have been exposed.

Your doctor can test you for covid, at your doctor’s appointment and you can go to a testing center, or test at home. There are many different testing options.

 A PCR means polymerase chain reaction. This test detects the presence of a virus if you have the virus at the time of the test and detects fragments of the virus, after you are no longer infected. Usually, your doctor or healthcare organization will administer this test. (source)

The rapid Covid test antigen tests, lateral flow tests, or LFTs, are rapid antigen tests to detect SARS-COV-2 infection (COVID-19). They are quick to implement with minimal training and have significant cost advantages. These tests give COVID-19 testing results within 5–30 minutes, they can also be administered at home. (source)

How to ensure accurate test results 

Make sure you or your healthcare provider washes their hands before performing this test. Make sure the testing kit is not opened and it is not damaged in any way. Do not eat or drink anything 30min prior to testing.

CDC mask and quarantine guidelines for those who test positive 

If testing positive, the CDC now recommends quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask (well-fitting mask) use for an additional 5 days, if you test positive. However, the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days before the onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after (source)

This may help you to reduce your covid symptoms if you test positive for covid. Some states are mandating the use of surgical, KN95, or N95 masks to reduce your risk.

After exposure, in January 2022, my son, husband, mother, and father were all taking the olive oil-infused mixture, after being exposed. I placed myself in quarantine and had little contact with them after I tested positive. They had been around me the whole week and we were exposed. My son and husband were both in close contact with me daily. Luckily, No-one tested positive or had symptoms of Covid.
