I think I have the Delta variant........

It is not too bad. I have a horrible headache and runny nose and congestion. Couldn't get out of bed yesterday but today seems better. Had the Moderna second dose two months ago. My mom recently travelled to Seattle and came home with it, I picked her up from the airport.

3. Self-diagnosis?

Get tested and find out.

6. If your test proves it out, you are a good example of why the vaccines are so great, AND...

...why we need to VAX AND MASK.

7. If you've been unmasking, it could just be a cold

With all the heavy masking a year ago many reported not having a cold, flu, etc

Testing is one way we can contribute to the science surrounding the virus and the vaccines.

Best wishes to you!

16. Get a test.

...and quarantine.



If you have it, the vaccination is keeping you out of the hospital.

20. Very possible you have it.

The delta variant is VERY easily transmitted, like catch it just by walking by someone who has it tramsmissible...

So, alone, in a car for a however many minutes drive... pretty good chance.

Feel better.

21. Walking By Someone Who Has It?

So you mean Outdoors as well? Meaning we should be wearing a mask at All times?

23. That's what I've been reading. Yes.

But, if you do get it, being vaccinated keeps it from blossoming into a serious case... for most people.

But, as usual, I must add the caveat that this disease is new and the science changes daily as we discover more.
