Dumbass Gov. Reeves is finally realizing the gravity of the situation in Mississippi, but of course his implementation of preventive measures is foolish. The seat of Lauderdale County is Meridian, home to Sela Ward.

 

Maybe he was a big Sisters fan.

So I have passed my self isolation timeline and am fine but of course still at home.

 

I was curious how many people have gotten ill closer to the 14 day mark than the 1 day mark of being exposed. It seems all cases I am reading about tend to be within 2 or 3 days of known exposure.

 

I know a typical virus - the symptoms if you have caught it -  typically materializes no more than 7 days after exposure. After that you are normally out of danger of getting ill. Is the 14 days just a safeguard? It's really why after I passed 7 days from exposure I wasn't really that worried.

Happy for you.

 

I think on average you develop symptoms within 5 days.

 

One of my coworkers developed symptoms on her 13th day of self-quarantine. She could not smell. The next day, she tested positive. Eerie.

How is she doing? Was that her only symptom?
