Today I had my third COVID-19 test.
The first was back when it all started, via my workplace – we all had to get tested, and it was fine! The bit down the throat wasn’t so fun, but the up-the-nose bit was great; it opened my sinuses up really well.
The second one was a few months later, after I started feeling unwell. They were symptoms I wouldn’t have associated with COVID-19, but I was directed to have a test. As this happened at work, my workplace was really good about quickly documenting everywhere I had been and with whom I had come in contact, just in case. That test was even easier than the first, possibly because I knew what to expect.
Today’s test was different. Literally. I’ve been unwell with a couple of different things recently, but at least some of the symptoms are more in line with what you’d associate with COVID (cold/flu-like symptoms). This time, the test was much simpler – it could have been the cold numbing me up a bit, but it felt like the only lightly touched the sides of my mouth and barely entered my nostrils.
New test, maybe?
I dunno. Isolating until results come in, of course, which is fine… all the better to get over whatever is making me sick, whether it’s COVID or not.
