Schrodinger’s Virus

Remember Schrodinger’s cat? If you never opened the box was the cat still alive, or was the cat dead? As long as the box was never opened, then both sides could be argued. Awaiting for Covid test results is kind of like being Schrodinger’s cat. Until the test comes back if you are someone with symptoms, do you act like you’re positive or like you’re negative? Last week, this was our reality.

It all began with both myself and Mr Kisby having the worst headaches we’ve ever had (neither of us get migraines), horrible body aches, chills, and feeling beyond exhausted. We felt the responsible thing to do given how many people I’m around was to get tested. That was on Saturday afternoon. The test itself while uncomfortable wasn’t as horrific as I thought it would be. Then came the waiting…

There are two ways you can wait for your Covid test results. You could pretend you never took it and go about business as usual. If you do this and the results do come back positive, then you could inadvertently infect an abundance of unsuspecting people depending on your level of activity. You could continue going to work, going out and about like it’s business as usual, attend church, go to games, etc.

Or you could go with the idea of “positive until proven negative”. With this mentality, you quarantine yourself and avoid all others outside your household until the results come back. This way you minimize the possibility of spreading the virus to loved ones (and strangers for that matter) and maximize the ability to rest and recuperate while waiting your test results. For us, this mentality was a no brainer. If we had the virus, then the last thing we wanted to do was spread it to our family and co-workers. Calm me crazy, but a pandemic is no time to think “an eye for an eye”. A pandemic is a time to be the bigger person and attempt to stop the spread!

It made for a long few days from Saturday until the Thursday when we got our results. There was a lot of feeling Schrodinger’s poor cat! Thankfully, when the results finally arrived, we ended up testing negative!

Have you been tested for Covid? What was it like waiting for your results?
