    Then put it in a solution, shake it, and squirt some snot water on a small pad.

    Said I was negative.

    Cost me nothing but, oh about 2 minutes of my time.

    Again though...I want to do this, because I don't want to make my whole office sick.

    That costs real $$$$!!!!
    The only time I got tested was in mid 2020 before elective knee surgery. It was not pleasant and I'd say dangerous. They stuck that fucking swab all the way into my nasal cavity until it touched the back of my eye. Fuck sake, I've heard that they have injured many.
    That being said, the test is not accurate.

    Yes, I heard it was quite the experience when they first started.

    The at-home test is no where near as invasive.

    As for accuracy?

    I have no idea, but, I don't really have a reason to distrust it.

    IF for some reason I did test "positive," I would just stay home, and if things got really bad, go to the doctor, or emergency room (IF severe enough...)

    Not really going to effect me other than maybe I stay at home for a few days, just to avoid spreading it.

    But, I will probably be sick anyways, so..../shrug

    The politicians, and that includes Fauci, haven't found a way to make money off herd immunity. Therefore, they have no interest in herd immunity.

    Well I wonder what has happened to the Reporting on the covid19 infection.
    Somehow this was a pandemic when Donald J Trump was in office and there were 50 cases a day being reported in the state I live in.
    Now slow joe and the dimshits are in office and the daily & day average is 100 a day and the world has been saved by slojoe and the dims the pandemic is over and all is well with the n0w much greater version of America.
    What is it I am missing besides the usual dimshit smoke and mirrors and the press being coconspirators of their crimes.
    THERE can be only ONE!
