My test was negative!

So relieved!

Physician sent me for a COVID-19 test yesterday to be on the safe side. I was tired and had a sore throat the past 3 days.

Last week I spent several hours in a hospital ER while at least one person who was COVID-positive was seated within 15 feet of me. He was masked and not coughing or sneezing. There were also two people who were maskless. I kept my own mask on, tried to not touch anything, used sanitizer and tried to keep away from others when possible.

You must have been pretty nervous, given those circumstances.
So happy for you!

And even though they weren't due to symptoms I was extremely anxious waiting for the results. I imagine you are even more relieved than I was!
