Took her for a PCR at Rite Aid yesterday afternoon...results still pending...and have her taking a rapid test at the health department next hour. So, if either yesterday's PCR or today's rapid are positive then I'll know the Binax was a false neg.
    Fingers crossed for a negative result! Are the four girls vaccinated or unvaccinated?

I'm amazed.

    Wendibird22, I hope the negative was accurate! Best to your family! I am curious if they were eating outside or inside?

    I just snagged 2 Binax kits from Walgreens. Not Walmart, Walgreens! They have been OOS as well, but were in stock for shipping just now. Not the best price, but will be glad to have them on hand.

    Negative test today too! So relieved. This was a rapid test but a lab machine read test.

    Girls were eating inside. Here's the kicker...the put a few tents outside and "encouraged" kids to each outside. But my kid and her friends asked to on the first day of school and were told no. They assumed 6th wasn't old enough to (the cafeterias are 5-12) and assumed it was just for high schoolers. The cafeteria is a mix of hexagonal and rectangular tables. None of them big enough for 6ft distancing. So every kid eating indoors with their mask off for more than 15mins (which isn't that every kid at lunch?!) has an exposure risk every.single.day. My kid sits at a rectangular table and the girl with COVID and DD sat at opposite ends the furthest distance...so about 5 ft apart. One girl immediately to the left of the girl with COVID has also now tested positive. I've complained to the school about the lack of distancing and that the bus and classrooms are relatively safe because masks plus 3ft at all times. But the cafeteria is the wild wild west with no protocols. Superintendent claims they've reduced the number of people in the cafeteria but I said who cares. I don't care if there's 5 or 500 in the space. So long as my kid cannot be 6ft apart from other people it doesn't really matter. It's fine to sit like that for 7-12 grades because those kids can be vaccinated. But 6grade and younger cannot and you are basically exposing them to risk for 30mins every lunch 5 days a week. I finally got a somewhat satisfactory response today that they are adding extra dining rooms and spreading 6 grade out more and will be assigning seats (right now they can chose where to sit and change seats every day...so no contact tracing without kids having to remember who they sat with what days). But unless the tables get bigger and they make sure they are 6ft apart, it still doesn't matter. And I can tell my kid to eat in less than 15mins and put her mask back on but if the other kids in contact with her aren't masked up, she'd still be a contact...all parties must be masked. It just boggles my mind that the school seems to not care enough to do something about it.

    Donít have that result yet. They have a 2-5 day turnaround.
