For those of you that have tested positive for COVID...what were some of your symptoms and when did you notice the onset from exposure?

I got tested yesterday as a precaution with a couple of symptoms - mild sore throat into the upper chest, and intermittent very mild cough. No other symptoms (taste/smell are fine, no fever, pulse ox is normal, no fatigue or digestive issues). Could be nothing, or could be a mild case. I should know by tomorrow.

Dang...I’m had a little sore throat yesterday but have had persistent chest pressure since Sunday morning. I would have been exposed Saturday night, so not sure if what I’m experiencing is COVID- related or not since it’s so soon. Sounds like I might need to be tested in the next few days if symptoms persist.

Sore throat and headache on the first day, then exhaustion and chills (fever), then loss of taste and smell. It took me a full 10 days to recover and was a roller coaster of feeling okay and then feeling horrible throughout the day after day like 5

Started with a mild cough. Next morning I was exhausted and had body aches. Got tested and was positive. Day 2 is so far better than day 1. I have been taking lots of vitamin C, D, and Zinc. Appears to be helping.

This - definitely keep up on vitamins C, D, and Zinc. It will help your recovery.

Had a mild cough on day 1 and just felt really tired. By day 3 lost all sense of smell and taste, so I got tested and it came back positive. Now on day 4 and just feeling super tired

Does anyone else feel like Olympic campaigns are seriously subpar this year? (One exception being the skateboarding FB ads by Droga). Normally I feel like there are at least several great campaigns you see over and over and this year I literally can’t even bring many to mind. Wondering if the cause has been covid production restrictions, or less money pumped in due to fear of the games being cancelled, or brands feeling like the Olympics shouldn’t have even happened. Thoughts?

Had a trip to Mexico booked last year for New Year’s Eve with SO, we canceled when covid really was up ticking in the fall and received vouchers for everything. We rebooked a month back assuming covid was tamed but now with delta I’m really nervous. I’m vaccinated but the reports rn with breakthroughs aren’t great. We would be leaving for Mexico this coming weekend. We don’t have time to rebook given the timelines of our vouchers. I can’t decide if we should go or just eat the trip at this point

I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?

My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
