Proof isn't proof IMO when it comes to covid-19 infection tests. Why do you have a fever? Do not feel confident you aren't infected, I say. I'm no MD, but to me a fever is a rare thing. I may get one a year, if that. I don't think I've run 100.4 for several years.I took one of those rapid test covid tests today. I got there at like 10:45am and had to fill out a form then gave it back and waited in my car for about an hour since it was crowded. Then it took about 2 minutes and I was out.
This test was different than the one I did a while back that took 3 days to get results. That one was deep in the nose for a 10 count. The one I took today was not as deep and it was in both nostrils. I'm not sure if the rapid one vs. the other one is just "different" in general.
But it was negative so that is good.
I went because I've had a low grade fever since Saturday and my wife is being induced on Thursday. And they do temperature checks and if you have a fever (not sure how high) then you can't go in. And last night we nearly went to the hospital when I had a 100.0 fever (highest I've had).
But now at least if I have some temperature when we do go if I'm not better by then, I will have proof of a negative covid test from days prior.
