    Default For fun: how many times have you been tested for covid?

    Let's see who here holds the record for most covid tests!
    (I'm sure it's a healthcare worker...)

    I've been tested only twice...last October when my boys had it. The first test was negative but I was worried I tested too early so I did another one.

    None! Same for DH.

    DS, 11.5, has been tested four times — once as a condition of basketball camp, once for exposure and twice for cold symptoms. All negative.

    I was going to come back and ask if anyone *has never* been tested! That's quite an accomplishment actually-- ha ha!

    Every week from April 19 except for the summer months when no school. Weekly testing is a requirement of the school district where I work

    I've only tested once. DD has tested 5 times - three times after exposures, once before summer camp and once a few days after she got home from summer camp. DS2 has tested twice for symptoms but one of those times he had 3 separate tests, 2 rapid and 1 PCR. DS1 hasn't tested at all but he was virtual last year and doesn't do as many extracurricular activities. Plus he's the least social. DH has tested more times than he's counted I'm sure. His company requires testing under certain circumstances so it's all been screening minus one possible exposure.

    Only once, and it was for part of a research study.

    Not holding my breath though. With kids back at school I fully expect to need/want to be tested at some future point in time.

    At least 2 dozen times. None as a result of exposure. All have been routine surveillance tests for work. It started as periodic last fall, went to weekly for Jan-June, was eliminated for vaccinated people in July/Aug, and just got reinstated regardless of vax status last week due to Delta breakthrough cases. DH and my two DDs have never been tested.

    Gluten free since Nov '11 after non-celiac gluten sensitive diagnosis. Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.

    I've only tested twice. We decided to all go regularly now that the kids are back in school.
    My kids hadn't tested at all before August and have now gone 3 times with us and 4 or 5 times each at school.

    I did give blood last spring and part of that was getting antibody results too.
