I have symptoms and was tested 3 days ago, waiting for the results...worst part so far has been the quarantine.

How long have you had symptoms ? Have they changed at all ?

ok, woke up with a fever very early Thursday morning and went to a walk in clinic when they opened. I tested negative for all common flu’s and my symptoms were inconsistent with any other illness going around; that and the fact that I was exposed to other people who were quarantined awaiting results was enough for them to test me....so for three days I’ve had a fever and no other symptoms and they haven’t gotten better or worse in those three days. Ive also had a coworker who was turned away from a test at one place because he didn’t have enough symptoms but went to a second place that was willing to test him and he was positive.

Praying for a quick and complete recovery jjb.  Hang in there.

Those are very good indicators. Are quarantined at home or at a medical facility?  Best of luck.

My daughter has still
Never been called for a test and she has been “on a list” for 10 days. She is a low priority - no pre-existing conditions, young, mild symptoms. She’s mostly better now-nagging dry cough but that’s it. However, we have all been with her and “felt” symptoms. We’ve been isolated from grandma cause we just know we would Rather be safe than super sorry.

That’s how my daughter opened her “Sweet 16” birthday present from her grandma today. That sucked to watch.

I’m sorry man that’s really hard. I guess to look on the bright side you can say she showed immense love for her grandmother and maturity by doing that today. She deserves some serious kudos for that.

Also my mother who is 67 and in a higher risk bracket took 6 days to get a call back and finally has a appointment at glen island tomorrow at 9:30. She is now telling me she doesn’t want to go because she mostly feels better and doesn’t want them to waste gloves and masks on her.

I’m still trying to convince her to go so this way if she tests negative she can come stay with me in about a week

A woman that I know posted posted on Facebook that she has it. She’s been quarantined at home now for 11 days and the hospital has her on the malaria drug. She said it seems to be working and many patients are on it, even though it’s not being publicized yet. Hopefully things continue to improve for her and everyone else so that the FDA can give it the ok for widespread use.

Found out today that a coworker has a child relative that has tested positive. Co worker was in close contact with the child last week. I was in close proximity to this co-worker occasionally during this week. In and out of my office, handing me papers for signature, sitting near me on a conference call, etc.

We’ll see where this goes. Told my boss, and I haven’t been told to stay out yet.

Our business is excluded from the ban by being on the essential list. I’m kind of essential myself. As least until we shut everything down. Then not so much.
:dontknow:
We are down to 15% workforce. If it gets thinner, we’ll be forced to hard stop anyway.

Oh man, hope every thing works out. Fingers crossed for  ya .

Why? Businesses and everyone will be back to work by Easter as predicted. A 14-day quarantine is overkill. We’ll be out this soon.

 

My brother is a doctor who at a hospital, so I know the issues are very serious and real. However, I don’t expect it to last much longer. I think we are still in great shape by Easter

I sure don't see that but I sure hope I am wrong.  I think even best case scenario is more like mid May.  But three weeks out and no peak yet doesn't seem possible. 

I think this will be a while. And I think further restrictions are coming in the near future.  

I'm rooting for this prediction to be more right than any of your others.

As much as I hate to agree with you rob, I think your right. My youngest is a RN at university of Rochester and they are ramping up for a up tick of cases. He was telling us the state put out a call to arms basically to all health  care personal retired , students etc. wanting to know if they would come back to work  or would relocate in the state to help. 
Here in Steuben county we now have 3 cases and this is in a week, one of the infected was at a volunteer fire department function with 100 people. It will get worse in upstate before it tapers off.

I can't think we will go more than another week without a restriction on interstate travel.   

If you figure peak is even 2-3 weeks away, then another 3-4 weeks for it to cycle down. That's mid to late May.  And I think that is being positive.

A medical professional pretty highly placed in the St Peters health group said, I think Friday, peak is predicted 42 days away.  Going to be a long April, me thinks.

Biz I hope you are right. Some of the reports out of queens I’m reading are pretty sobering.  I wish I had the link still. I’m not looking forward to eating crow, but the writing is on the wall. (Speaking of crow... thinking look into crow hunting.. nothing else to shoot)

the post a page or so ago  of 100 people gathering at volunteer fire event is disturbing. This is the kind of thing that needs to be stopped.

im sure you all saw the kinds of draconian measures taken in China, even far away from the epicenter. It’s going to take some serious wake up calls to get this level of cooperation here.  I fear if this does not happen, we may be closer to Italy than China regarding the wuhan flu results. The citizens of China complied with the communist government and mostly embraced the actions. We need to as well, no matter the inconvenience.

I read that one of the first positive tests in Bath, NY was at this type of event.

Steuben County resident who tested positive attended party

BATH – Steuben County confirmed its first two positive test result for coronavirus.

The Steuben County Public Health Department received notification overnight Friday a Town of Bath resident tested positive for COVID-19. The person is isolated and being monitored by the Health Department. 

Health officials also learned Friday that the individual attended an event March 14 with about 100 people at the Bath Fire Department, and officials are in the process of contacting other attendees.

Yes, it will spread. Down here they are short hundreds of staff because of it. I think the numbers will slow day here in Westchester and rise upstate before its all under control. People who work at hospitals with zero medical education are being called into action as well.

We are nowhere close to Italy. Last I checked 60 people per 1 million in US have it. Whereas over 700 people per 1 million in Italy have it. Can’t compare numbers with a country whose population is way smaller than ours

Lot of interesting things can be done with numbers. I wonder on a population density comparison what the numbers would be. For example, Rome vs nyc or Long Island. Infection rates, death rates, this type of thing.  Not comparing on a national level where Parts of the us are still relatively unaffected. I have zero idea but this is the kind of thing I’m thinking about. Yes we are a long way from Italy and hopefully we will stay that way.

You’re right Lombardo is way wealthier than most of the US and they had more hospital beds per capita then we do by a significant margin

11 days behind Italy doesn’t take a biz prediction to figure out when we will be seeing the same ratio
