It's finally got me. I was at a work conference last week and at least one other person also picked it up there (almost certainly more as he's the only one I've heard from so far). So far I just have a runny nose and feel really tired, but not too bad.

Just remember to take time to recover well YP - it can take longer than you think even if you don't feel particularly unwell.

Yes, not keen on teaching without a mask when the university has effectively decided vaccines are enough, without, as far as I know, actually checking staff or student vaccination status.

GWS YP. I'm fully expecting to get it from work some time. It's pretty busy back in our office, and really very few precautions left. :-) G

Finally got me too. Had a ‘cold’ for nearly a week, Monday felt worse and started coughing but tested negative. Yesterday had to sit down for five minutes during a very gentle, husband-paced, flat walk. Very positive line quite quickly.

Feels like a very bad cold. Cooped up in campervan with husband, so unlikely he’ll avoid it it.

I'm feeling much better now. I haven't retested yet as I'm not planning to go anywhere before Friday anyway (I can WFH with no issues), but I've certainly been to work feeling far worse than this in the past.

I'm not sure exactly when the symptoms started to hit as last week was so busy that I was expecting to finish it feeling a little run down anyway. I wasn't surprised by feeling a bit tired until I realised it wasn't normal tiredness.

Got something to say?
