    I got my test, (negative)
    but it's a +/- test.

    All it really tells me is
    I didn't have it at the moment
    I took the test.
    Didn't indicate whether I had it
    and recovered already.
    And in the 4-5 days it took to recover? I could have been infected.
    In fact, the first day back on the job, inspite of my efforts to avoid people, put me in a situation with no PPE, no access to hand washing, no gloves, no mask and handling freight that may or not have been sanitized.

    So all that hype about a test?
    Meaningless.

    What happened? The right leg collapse?

    It's funny because I'm at a place right now that insists we drop the trailer during unload. Yeah, remove the 9 ton tractor and replace it with 2 8"x8" steel posts.

    I don't believe anything other than actuality, happening today. Especially what the Feds say. Give me the test. We need both, a test for the virus and just as importantly the antibody test for having had the virus. Then the only possible blind spot, 5 to 6 days, incubation period. Testing will be everything for controlling the spread, to getting folks back to work.
