Self-Service

I had my third COVID test of this pandemic today.  It was part of the hospital survey of asymptomatic clinical employees to gauge the prevalence of COVID.  Last time I did this they went medieval on my nose and brain, shoving that swab all the way down and scrapping.  Ohh, it was unpleasant. Today, was much different.  We self-swabbed, and only went into the nares, ten swirls on each side.  Very tolerable.  You put the swab in the test tube, sealed it, put it in a bag and then stuck it in another bag being held by the testing assistant.  I got the result eight hours later.

I’m hoping to keep COVID-Free until I get the vaccine, which could be later this month.  I hope so.
