    Lucky bastards with minimal or no symptoms. Most have cleared for me except I developed a cough a couple days ago that’s hanging on and still have 0 energy / stamina. I take the dog out to the yard to pee and literally have to lay down when I get back in. Tested positive a week ago yesterday

    I felt exactly the same way a couple months ago and never got a positive covid test. I'm convinced I've actually had it several times but just never time the test properly to trigger a positive result.

    Good luck and feel better soon!

    It’s crazy. I tested positive Tuesday night on a rapid. Went and got a PCR Wednesday that came back positive a day or two later. Wife and youngest went Thursday for a PCR both came back negative. My wife had the exact same symptoms as me. Wife and two kids tested positive Saturday night on rapids. Went for PCR tests on Sunday. Results came back Tuesday, two kids were positive wife still showing negative with full blown symptoms. She went back for a third PCR before it finally showed positive. A coworker and his family had the same situation, two negative PCRs with positive rapids before testing positive. I think this new variant or sub variant is becoming harder to identify with the PCR tests in some people. I think that has a little to do with how it’s spreading here in NS. I know myself up until this past week if I tested negative on a PCR I assumed I was negative and went about my business.

    I have a friend who is a scientist at Fred Hutch, which is one of the major research centers here in Seattle that developed the technology behind the tests. I made the mistake in a recent conversation with her to cast doubt on the effectiveness of the tests and she got completely defensive saying from a scientific perspective that's not true. So - I dunno what to say to that. Maybe it has to do with "viral load"? At the end of the day, as long as I'm healthy moving forward and have the right protections from a vaccine standpoint, it's part of our lives until a cure gets developed, not just a vaccine.

    Yeah I definitely think viral load has a big part in it. There’s also some speculation that being fully vaccinated and boosted plays a small part in “fooling” the test a bit because of the body’s response to the virus. It just seems strange that you are hearing of and seeing more people testing positive on rapids and negative on PCRs recently. It is very interesting to watch the symptom progression and regression the girls are having compared to when I did. You can definitely see a delay of a few days from when I tested positive to when they did. The wife’s still doesn’t make sense though as she would have been in closest contact to me

    So the wife and I just took Rapids for shits and giggles and they are still showing positive. I'll be two weeks tomorrow since I tested +, I though rapids were supposed to go back to showing negative lol

    No, I tested positive last week after a rapid and I got COVID during the heydey of the transformers variant. Seem to recall hearing somewhere you can test positive WELL after you've had it.

    I thought the 90 day positive afterwards was only on the PCR tests, that is the info that was released originally. At one point places of employment were demanding a negative rapid after infection to return to work

    I could be wrong. Could be a false positive I got as well? :shrug2:
