Kid tested positive today, so I have to test negative before I can go back to work. Getting tested in a couple of hours.

Had to get tested last summer before surgery--Negative
Got tested again about a month ago when I came down with my annual sinus infection--Negative as expected. If not for having parents/inlaws in their 80s, would not have bothered at all with a test.

I get tested 2 or three times a week.

More if I choose to.

Best part is the information goes nowhere. I am not on any statistics.

Way back when the test was first available, and the vax was not, I worked at a location where if you had so much as a sneeze, you had to either sit out for 14 days, or have a negative test. At that time the symptoms were pretty vague, so basically, take a sick day and don't come back without a negative test. I worked in an area where work from home was impossible unless you wanted a visit from the Fed's. Negative.

No test here. I had a sinus cold a few weeks ago. Horrible drainage.....felt bad for about 3 days, then had residual congestion for several weeks. No loss of taste or smell, so I don't think it was the Wu flu.

Other than that, the only time I was sick this whole artificial crisis was when I rode with one of my employees, who was very sick for about a week after getting his second injection. He said he was better, but after riding with him, I got sick. Friggen' shedding spike proteins probably got me.

I try to stay away from injected people.

Three negative tests over the last two years.

Not sure how I've avoided it so far.
6 people on my floor at work, 4 have tested positive since Christmas.
Now several of our other employees are out sick that work on another floor, but come up to ours occasionally.

I was pretty much the same until the end of December. My turn I guess

No test came back positive, despite having done nothing to avoid infection before getting vaccinated, however:

There's "testing negative" and then there's the far more gray "infected enough to impact others".

Rapid antibody tests only look for antibodies. They are wholly dependent on whether you've been previously infected or vaccinated, how long you've been exposed, the mechanism of exposure, initial viral load, and a host of other factors specific to how your body fights off infections. PCR tests are more accurate, detecting actual presence of the virus (or at least its genetic markers), but still doesn't necessarily indicate the probability that you can or will infect others.

To be fair, I was part of one of the first mass spreader events, right when we realized it was in the U.S., so that probably contributed to my resistance thereafter.

not tested, don't care...what is the purpose of being tested? If I'm sick, I take vitamins, drink water and sleep
testing doesn't change that

Are you confusing antigen with antibody testing?
