Hello! Right here’s a fast video of my expertise taking the Covid-19 Test and Ben’s expertise taking the Covid-19 Speedy Test. I’m not a physician, therapist or paleontologist. This isn’t medical recommendation or data, simply a quick tackle what it seems like and the way it feels.
Taking the Covid19 Test and Speedy Test Video:
- Ben lives in FL and not too long ago got here again to CA for work. He was very cautious throughout journey however did take a cross-country flight the week earlier than he began to really feel sick.
- He began to really feel sick, primarily drained and sore (or physique aches). Given the present outbreak of Covid-19 & his current travels we needed to deal with it like he could have been contaminated with the virus.
- I talked to a good friend that’s a nurse practitioner and has labored at a Covid-19 testing clinic in Orange County about Ben’s signs. She voted to behave like he had it and quarantine till we might get a take a look at to substantiate in any other case.
- I personally thought it was simply excessive jet-lag as a result of he modified time zones and was working lengthy hours as quickly as he obtained to CA. And we have been taking a lot of walks with Diego so that would clarify the soreness. However once more, we needed to err on the aspect of warning as a result of it was the suitable factor to do.
- I didn’t really feel sick or have a fever. Ben did have a very slight fever and tracked it in a spreadsheet a number of instances a day for a few days as we waited for the take a look at to trace if it was getting worse – it didn’t.
- It was onerous to get a take a look at! The day he began to really feel sick it was early within the morning and I spent most of the day on the lookout for a native testing website that had open appointments. There have been NO appointments for that day. I lastly discovered ONE appointment for the following day.
- He obtained the fast take a look at. It took 20 minutes. It value slightly below $200 out of pocket. [His results – Negative]
- I obtained the usual take a look at the following day (at one other location – these have been the soonest appts I might discover). I wasn’t allowed to get the fast take a look at as a result of my medical insurance didn’t cowl it and I couldn’t pay for it out of pocket. The outcomes took virtually a complete week to come back again. [My results – Negative]
- I don’t suppose they stick the q-tip up your nostril very far or onerous. It didn’t damage or make my eyes water.
- General – The take a look at was fast and painless. However discovering a take a look at and getting an appointment was NOT simple. And I needed to wait a week for the outcomes(it was estimated between 3-5 days). I’ve heard it’s taking even longer than that in lots of locations now.
