I really don’t think I am. When I got the J&J shot, I had no reaction other than a sore arm. For the moderna booster months later, I had a bit more of a reaction, but within the realm of normal for not having had covid.
As of mid-June, I had no infection-produced antibodies. Don’t think I’ve had covid since then. Would like to take another antibody test soon to verify that, after I get through this wave, if still no confirmation of an infection by then.
I have a feeling that I did get it before it had become a national focus. In Nov 2019, I took my wife to O’Hare for a flight; ~3 days later, I get a nasty cough (don’t recall fever, but it would’ve been a pretty low-grade fever) that would keep me up at night. I’m prone to bronchitis, but never to the extreme where I go to the doctor for relief.
My problem with confirming/refuting this is that I wasn’t eligible for the antibody testing until Mar 2020. My understanding is that after about 3 month of having COVID, these antibodies “disappear”.
Always masked, rarely go out, fully wfh. Plus Canadian lockdowns.
Also very careful with who we group with. Mostly just family.
Not yet, but I think it’s coming. I expect my son to bring it home from work/school.
I’ve masked up when in stores pretty much since this thing started, including when it was voluntary. When COVID is running wild like now, I wear a high quality mask if in a potentially exposed situation.
Only had a few indoor restaurant meals since March 2020, and those were during times when community transmission was low. This was a big lifestyle change for me as I used to eat at restaurants frequently.
Reduced in-person gatherings indoors with friends and family. We’ve done it some of course, but gatherings with friends in particular have been down.
My brother owns a restaurant, and my high risk sister works there for him. I am really surprised that neither caught it since they are basically indoors with unmasked strangers eating/talking for 5 days every week.
I’ve avoided it afaik. I also fit the Arthuritis / Lucy description pretty well. Well, technically, I’d been going to the office for a long time, but that is low risk because few other people are there. I’m a little surprised that my kid didn’t get it at school in the week before they closed down. He got 3 close-exposure notices in one week. But he’s been tested several times over the past few weeks and never got it.
