Serious question. I started developing symptoms of covid last Friday. This included fatigue which worsened last Saturday.

It’s been over a week since my first symptom, but I’m not sure when to test again to see if I am positive.

My firm’s IT (especially system saving and file locating function) is so bad 😐😞 and they keep doing updates no one asked them for just to mess with the stuff we already got a hang of without doing anything about the issues we actually need fixed.

Or is that supposed to be our non-billable time?

Painful sex related to covid? I know this is an absurdly specific question but I’m seeing someone new and sex has always been sort of painful for me but in the 2 days before I realized I have covid, it really started to hurt (way more than the first few times we had sex).
