Three days of holiday doings at our house. That creates lots of issues wrt siblings’ families (none of whom will be sleeping here), but we’ve gotten everyone reasonably onboard with the testing schedule. That leaves my two adult daughters who will be staying here, also keeping to the testing schedule which includes binaxnow tests each morning.
If any member of a sibling’s family tests positive, family leaves.
If a daughter tests positive, either she goes home or isolates here. If wife or I test positive, certainly we isolate, and I guess we let the daughters decide how long they want to stay.
One daughter has a dog. If that daughter tests positive, and wants to isolate here, does the dog need to isolate, or can she still roam the whole house freely? (Keeping the dog away from her owner is not viable; keeping the dog isolated with her possible but not best unless necessary.)
It was okay. Unpleasant in the way most illnesses are. Wouldn’t recommend seeking out the experience, but I’d go to much greater lengths to avoid norovirus than covid. But I realize I’m younger &/or less obese than many of the other readers here, so YMMV.
ETA (on-topic): I don’t think covid came into our house through our pets, but who knows?
Excellent idea (not sure if yours, mine or both should be in red font), but our concern is less
Daughter infects dog, dog infects us
Daughter coughs on dog, depositing viral particles; we interact with dog and pick up too many particles; or similar, without the dog having Covid.
(Maybe that’s an idea so far fetched that it should be in red font).
