My husband has COVID (found out two days ago). He is currently quarantining. How long do I have to “worry” about myself getting COVID? I hear that partners typically test two days later. If I don’t test positive two days later, am I out of it?

Laid off in ‘20 during Covid. Took 5 months to land an offer, which was a role I didn’t want and at a much lower salary. Said ok, I’ll take this & keep interviewing to find something better…2 yrs, ~40 interviews and 0/7 final rounds later I’m still in the same role. The tease and effort of going deep into almost every interview process but having 0 offers and no real feedback on why I didn’t get them has made me bitter and very exhausted.

I am a former partner that gave up my partnership during Covid with a caveat that if my income goes up I can buy back in. I am now an employee. There have been some conflicts recently that make me want to leave the firm but I do to want to lose ground by starting over again. Is it better to stay in a toxic firm for a shot at getting my practice back or start over, possibly losing my income and practice? The conflict was a politics fueled sexist rant by one of the partners.

Hi Fishes, Everyone must be aware of the downfall of small-scale companies in the past 2 years because of this Covid situation. One of my friend's father's businesses has got affected harshly in the past two years because of Covid.
