Ummm.. you could show your friend a bit of compassion?? This is a public health failing, not an individual one. The same behaviors could cause someone to get covid and another person not to because it's also a game of chance when public health officials have roundly failed is in both guidelines and mandates

@CA, what are you on about? She got covid and informed OP via a group chat. Are you saying she got covid cos she was irresponsible? You know how many pple have been super careful but still caught covid anyway?. What exactly is your point?

She told you she is sick and is looking for support , if you also feel sick you can do the same. I don’t understand what else you need from her, is she supposed to check in with you hourly to see if you are starting to feel sick? Sorry but you’re in the wrong here

Nah if you test positive you should really be a responsible adult and personally reach out to everyone you’ve spent time with to inform them so they can quarantine/get tested/take precautions. Otherwise this shit will never end!

But she did notify OP that she has covid - is there a rule that this needs to be 1:1 communication only or a certified letter for goodness sake? You can’t dictate how ppl communicate, the friend informed of her covid status, she did her duty

Not sure why you’re annoyed. Having had Covid I can tell you that you feel awful and drained. And she notified everyone by telling you in the group chat no?

Was she vaccinated?

Yes

Do you know how many people are just not letting others know they were positive? I stopped being friends with someone when they knew they tested positive and didn’t tell any of us until after her 14 day quarantine and NONE of us felt sick or tested positive til 6 days later and exposed MULTIPLE people since some worked in the hospital 😓 and she initially denied we got it from her LOL!

This is why covid hasn’t ended :) both friends are wrong, one is just worse

You too can expose people at any point…you’re contagious before you can get the test

Fish Friends, what are the foods and recipes that you've started adopting in the COVID world? I'll start with my super easy flatbread pizza, improvised due to laziness and a lack of yeast and baking materials available. 2 cups of flour and a half cup of water. Add a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and knead. Then you just roll it out as thin as possible and add whatever you want! Anything! Bacon? Onions? Peppers? Mozzarella? Chuck the whole thing in a 500F oven for like 18-22 min.

Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home?
