Single Status Update
Test yesterday was negative. So we now have a patient with symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, a negative-positive-negative test constellation and nobody seems to really know how to proceed further from there and referred to the public health department.

Yes, PH department was just like "Well, no quarantine for you, go back to work!" - yeah, the hell I won't with an infection of the respiratory tract. I'm on sick leave until the end of the week per my GP (waiting for the paper to arrive with mail as they don't want you to come in in person if possible).
Hospital is a bit more cautious than PHD and didn't press me to come back tomorrow. They suspect recent unnoticed infection and wanted me to come in today for drawing blood for antibody testing. So now I'm stalking my labs for the results from home via VPN-client.
Prayers luv! I am actually working on my PhD in Public Health, we do care luv! There are many testing underway and with all the political debates on how best to quarantine, there are strict guidlines in place. Unfortunate, an upper respiratory infection with a negative testing is a touch and go situation, especially this time of the year. As someone previously noted: keep track of your temperature daily as well as monitor your own symptoms. If your symptoms worsen, please seek immediate assistance, as we don't have all the answers. Please take care of yourself and seek immediate attention with symptoms like shortness of breath, continued tightness in your chest. Remember there are new symptoms added for Covid-19 due to positive testing and research.
God bless you!
