Got tested today.

The county I live in has opened testing to anyone who lives in the county for free. It was quick and painless. We drove up, they checked our IDs and asked a few questions, took the swabs which did not hurt but did make us sneeze, and we drove off.

Our 28th anniversary is next week, and this was truly the oddest date we have ever been on. Did feel like we were in a sci to movie with everyone wearing white coveralls and full face masks, and people walking around in fatigues. These were real military, with no guns.

My husband goes back to work next week, he was sent home at full pay because he was over 60, as was everyone else over 60 in his company. He was able to do some work from home, but wants to make sure he has a clean bill of health before he goes back in. Neither of us have any signs of covid, other than the ones that mimic old age like body aches.

It was very well done. I hope everyone has a chance to get checked. They did tell us it will take 5 to 7 days to get the results. I do not know who is processing the tests.
