Out of curiosity, what constitutes a "cluster"? And what other type of facilities are included in that kind of grouping?

Why did you get tested? Do you think you were exposed? Whatever the reason, I hope all is well.

I woke up Tuesday just completely achy, sore throat, etc. I didn't have a fever, and still had taste, and smell. My doctor said originally not to get tested, but with my kids playing sports, etc, and me still feeling bad on Wednesday, said I should maybe get one to be cautious, even though I was feeling better vs Tuesday.

So I got one yesterday morning. Waiting for results. I still have some sinus/throat issues, but overall feeling better. Hopefully it's just a bug or something.

PS, if you do need to get tested, call around to your local med expresses (if that is the route you are going to go). Some of the busier locations like Wexford have like 3 hour wait times, where other locations that are testing, it only took me like 15 minutes.

Does COVID have some sort of blackmail on you or something? Is there a pee tape we don't know about?

Our Chief Medical Officer told our testers that if blood doesn't come back on the swap, you probably didn't do it deep enough

They just swished a q-tip in my nostril and it tickled. I was bracing for them to jam a thing into my brain.

I did an antibodies test yesterday... we'll see how it turns out.
I actually just went and donated blood. Haven't done it in a while and it's good timing to do it now before all the students get back. They run testing on the blood, so it's a nice little side benefit. Knowing the error rate of antibody testing though, I'll put next to no stock into the results.

I think it was tongue in cheek, but he made his point of "that thing has to get in there" pretty clear

I had a few family members that tested positive for antibodies as a part of their regular blood donation

First of all that's an asinine response. Why are you so hard pressed to pretend like this thing isn't a big deal?

I know there are a few newer, less invasive tests, but I highly doubt they're widespread right now. My work or my wife's work may actually have/use them.

That would still be incredible. Even if they have it to us by this time next year, that's incredible. This fall? Unthinkable.

Again, could you imagine being 79 and still working like he does everyday?

Hell no. I have just under 19 years left until I peace out of the workforce. :lol:

Allegheny County Update 7/31 - 8,094 Total Cases (+244 Cases, +33 Hospitalizations, +4 Death)

Numbers look bad but this also looks like a data dump.
The date of positive tests ranged from June 30 through July 30
The deaths only span July 23-July 29 which seems more in line with reporting norms. The county does not reveal the range of hospitalizations.
Also, long term care facilities are sadly getting hit hard again.
The new cases reported today represent at least 77 known to be among long-term care residents and staff at this time.
