Default Covid-19 Poll

This poll is anonymous. I’m wondering about the impact of this virus. I understand about the impact on our businesses and economical impact on our society. I am more interested in the actual disease and those that are affected and infected by it.

The second wave got my small town.

I have one previous co-worker currently in ICU and one being buried this weekend. Both public safety.

I have one family member (not in my household) and one previous client with very mild symptoms and recovering well.

Thanks for the info. I live in CA and do not know of anyone yet. (Knock on wood) I have a friend who told me his cousin died in NYC from COVID but the next day he said it was a drug overdose but that he was tested postmortem for COVID.

Are you asking if someone has it right now? Or past tense?

Both of the ones who got very ill worked the protests.

Repeated exposures over the last three weeks and very long, stressful hours on the job. I, personally, feel that is why they succumbed. They were already so worn down before the exposure that got them.

My aunt had it. She lives with her husband and my very elderly grandfather. We all thought he was a goner, but she kept it to herself and no other household members caught it!

She had symptoms, tested positive, but wasn't overly sick. She caught it (probably) from someone she worked with who also tested positive.

I voted no, as it's barely made it's way to my part of the state let alone my family but my Uncle (whom I see only once per year/lives 3 hrs away but in same state) got COVID and was hospitalized. He was released from the hospital after about 10 days and went home.

I guess about a week after he started having some kidney issues. Supposedly related to having COVID. He was re-admitted to the hospital and passed away about a week later.

I am hesitant to say his death was COVID although I am sure it will be counted that way statistically. He wasn't in perfect health prior to COVID and was 87 years old.

Otherwise, I know no one that has it or has had it.

Thank you, it is hitting the community pretty hard.

I think if another poll was done only including areas within 2-4 hours drive of the major rioting/protesting sites (like my community) the numbers would be polar opposites.

I was just telling my son about this poll and he told me one of his coworkers' daughter tested positive for COVID but was asymptomatic; her husband seriously ill and hospitalized with it but has recovered. Three of my husband's coworkers got it. As far as I know, they're all ok now. The coworker of my bil got it as well. He recovered, too.

My sisinlaw (age 47) tested postive along with her two special needs sons (age 25 & 16). They had mild symptoms with temp, tired, no-taste, etc.

My dh was tested once due to having a temp upon entrance to work. His tests was negative as he has severe sinus issues. He is to the point he can't go to the doctor because they always want to test for covid but it shuts your home down until the result comes back so we have refused to have any more doctor visits based on any normal cold/sinus symptoms.

I have closed my daycare two weeks in April due to advisement from the state. Closed two weeks in May due to my sis in law being positive as we live beside each other and had been around each other. I closed four stayed in Sat-Tuesday awaiting results of dh test.

I am about 65 miles south of Nashville on the Alabama line and Nashville is rampant with covid. The riots I'm sure hurt nashville. My nephews live in Nashville and both are working from home still but have been tested once due to their co-workers having covid before working from home.

My niece had a baby March 18 with only her husband there due to the covid guidelines. Her brothers that live in Nashville have fear being around the baby due to just walking outside exposure as they live in townhouses around many people that seem to love "carousing". They are so tired of being isolated but do not want covid nor spread it to others.

Their dad, my brother, developed symptoms but was negative. He has heart issues so his doctor ordered the test for percaution.

Most millennials here laugh, ridicule, and call names. While I do feel this has been over-exaggerated, there should still be respect.

Like me not allowing my daycare room to be used for get-togethers so they can play volleyball till all hours of the night and possibly infect my business...or laughing at people that choose to wear a mask;so disprespectful; saying things like "I dont care if my wife gets it or if my kids get it, cause it's fake and not real"; this was from a hospital millennial radiologist.

So tired of the disrespect despite all things possibly blown out of proportion. Thankfully, my niece that lives here and my nephews from Nashville have come to our aid and stand firm in protection of my large extended family.

During my cousin's death/funeral last week, many family came in from Missouri and could not believe how they were looked at for simply wearing mask. They said when they crossed the Tennessee line, you could feel the air-of-who-cares attitude.

So that kind of explains the issues at hand here. I do feel by this time all have probably been exposed but again, there needs to be respect for others despite what politics play within this covid era.

It is what it is and being disrespectful will not change it; only cause more negative effects.

I know nobody personally.
An older couple in my church got it, one recovered quickly, the other was hospitalized. Both are doing well now.
A daycare friend a town over is currently shut down because two of her DCP have tested positive (two different families)

Small town in Ohio

Fortunately I do not know anyone personally who has tested positive. We have any 20,000 University students about to descend on our town from all over the world, so I'm concerned that will change.

I don't know of anyone personally; I live in a small town in Vt. The Numbers here are good, so far, with a slight increase currently. But my ds who lives in the Burlington area; they know people who have gotten it. Some have recovered and some are still battling leftover symptoms. So far, it's affected mostly nursing home residents in Vt.'s biggest city. We do now have about 6 positive cases about 10 miles from here. That might seem like small potatoes but keep in mind how quickly it spreads and that our area is rural.

I completely understand and agree that respect for both sides(aren't we all in this together?) should be shown. I haven't personally witnessed any disrespect whether a mask is worn or not, at least not locally. But I've heard lots of stories and read the news and find it appalling.

Last night at church, someone mentioned a family member to be added to the prayer list as his wife had recently passed from covid. Afterwards, a snarky young lady said "well, I bet she had underlying problems, and covid will be silenced after the election".

Well, she may be right but the disrespect is killing me! My niece just walked off biting her tongue, but I said "well, xxxx, maybe she did have underlying problems...and my mom is a spring chicken but I don't want to play around in case she has an underlying problem".

I told her I'm not in the debating business to see how real covid really is but I am going to take percautions to take care of my own!

It has hit my city hard.

My aunt (whom my family has not seen since February) is believed to have it.

We suspect she had it - or something very similar in December as well. She was very ill with all of the classic covid symptoms. She had many tests, x-rays, antibiotics, steroids, and inhalers and was diagnosed with a viral respiratory infection. Per her the doc literally didn't know what to do. She took about 2 months to recover.

Then about a month ago she started with the same symptoms as before, this time more severe. She was tested over 12 days ago and has not received her results yet. She has not been hospitalized, but says she is very fatigued and the pressure in her chest is bad. She can keep her fever down with Tylenol but once it wears off, the fever comes back.

A friend has had 2 months of covid symptoms. Has been tested 4 times and all tests come back negative. Went to the ER 3 times and has had 5 different non-ER doctors tell her they believe she has covid and needs to be admitted to the hospital. But the hospital says she is not bad enough to be admitted. She also complains of being very fatigued, chest pain and a fever that rises to 104, then drops all day long. She was referred to a hematologist and an infectious disease specialist - both who found nothing so far.

Funnily enough, IME, the majority of people in affluent areas do not wear masks and have a caviler attitude toward covid. The less affluent areas are the ones where I see more mask wearing and less complaining toward practicing safety measures.

IME, some of the attitude shown by people is due to the oversaturation and abuse of the term COVID for political reasons. Just hearing the term sends them into irritation and vitriol.

Very similar to how the term QRIS or "Quality" feels to many of us and for similar reasons.

We all need some grace right now.

I know of a lady who had symptoms in January and we feel she had covid as she is still on oxygen but she is in her late sixties. She ran a temp several weeks, fatigue, wouldn't eat (no taste) and went to a pulmonologist that said it was respiratory issue, too. We want her to have the antibodies test to confirm she had covid but she doesn't want to get out to do so. There was no testing in my state in January for covid so?

We know someone who tested positive for over a month (we did not have any contact with them). She had very mild symptoms and was only tested due to loss of taste. She had a low grade fever of 99 and a throat irritation for only a few days nothing else but she tested positive for over a month. Her husband never got it and neither of her kids or grand kids whom she was around a lot.

I’m in Massachusetts. We were the first town to close school due to positive cases.

My good friend tested positive for covid. She works in a group home where a few employees came down with the virus (until they went into lockdown). She was okay, but very sick for about 10 days. She lost her taste and smell. She was weak for about 2 weeks after (winded, always tired).

One of my friends is an EMT. He caught it. Was sick for two weeks. His wife caught it, she was in the hospital for 3 days.

One of the children I care for- Her mother works in a Boston hospital. She said her floor cleared out, but it was because all of the patients died. She said the youngest victim on her floor was a 33 year old man, who had no underlying conditions. She took a leave of absence at work and she is keeping her child home to social distance.

My uncle does not believe the virus is a problem (he considers it the flu). He just held a large graduation party at his lake house. My immediate family declined the invite. My other uncle took my grandmother. No social distancing. The young adults were all playing beer pong. Two young adults have become sick so far, tested positive for covid. Now, my grandmother is in quarantine because she was in the group (more so around my young cousins who were hugging her etc...)
