One of my twins has CV19.  As an EMT she is exposed regularly... the masks are not a true, only minimal, protection. She is under quarantine for 10 days.  At this point, she feels like she has a cold, mild fever, minor headache.  
It's a hazard of the profession.  Certainly, EMTs don't get paid enough.

They probably do but are wearing it on the part they talk out of....

Dan, I've talked to a couple of people in the younger age bracket (<50(is that less than, I forgot)), and they said it was like a cold with a fever that lasted about a 5 days. Seems like the younger and stronger you are, the milder the symptoms are.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Give her all my best Dan and make sure she knows we really appreciate all she and her cohorts have risked and done during this awful time.

Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers for my daughter.  She is doing well... so far, about the same as a mild case of flu.  She is really tired of being cooped up and ready to go back to work... 
She was happy to hear of your kind words and sends her thanks.

Good to hear Dan, I’m sure her “can do “ attitude will make getting over this that much easier.

some people do not even know that they are sick, they simply lose their sense of smell and taste

CV19 is such a horrible disease that the rules have been changed.  My daughter has to be "fever free" for 24 hours and she can return to work.  She expects to be back a full duty on Monday.

It is a real chameleon, symptoms vary so widely among the population it is hard to pin down.

Excellent news that your daughter is one of the more fortunate ones that exhibited milder problems. Glad she’s doing well but maybe she shouldn’t be in too much of a hurry to get back to work. Was going to suggest you talk to her about it but that’s kinda like the pot calling the kettle black.

Meghan says she and her son got REAL SICK in February. For weeks! She said it was like pneumonia or something! Later she said she must have had Covid-19.


She said she lost her sense of smell and taste....later even now she says she has a metallic taste in her mouth and was unable to concentrate on long book passages. She said she forgot why she was holding her credit card in a checkout line. 

Later on she had an MRI and they said she had some blood clots. They gave her something for that.  

Then she had an antibody test which came up negative....which means that THEY don't know what they're doing.

Sure sounds like signs of COVID Ed. She should get retested for anti-bodies.
