I probably have the flu or Covid. Testing appointments are very difficult to find right now. Should I just isolate for a week? Not sure what I would do with the result of the test.

Probably shouldn’t spread the flu around either!

If you can’t get a test, isolation is the next best thing. Better safe than sorry. I hope you feel better soon.

I also had the flu for the first time in 10+ years a couple weeks ago. Tested positive for flu A and still have never tested positive for covid 🤷🏻‍♀️

What kind of sick person would laugh at this post? As someone who started the weekend with what I thought was a cold (sore throat, cough, congestion). I took a PCR test Sunday and my results came back positive for COVID. I’d recommend you isolate and try to treat the symptoms as best you can. Also get tested if and when you can.

A positive test, unless you are starting to have a hard time breathing is going to result in the same thing, isolate until you have no fever and symptoms subside, a minimum of 5 days. That should be the same for a flu (5 days might be much for a flu but you still don’t want to spread that).

At this point if you’re feeling unwell at all (flu/cold/whatever) - assume it’s COVID and don’t bother with a test because you’d do the same isolation regardless even if it wasn’t Covid

I posted the same thing on another board. Just isolate. No reason to chase a test.

Yep, just isolate. I know they say 5 days but there are studies saying 5 days is actually peak infectiousness…so I’d probably isolate 10 days to be safe.

Get tested if you have any interest in international travel, the certificate of recovery is super useful to avoid tests for international travel

I’m in a family of 4 - 2 have it and 2 don’t. We are trying to stay away from each other but I guess we’re all going to get it at some point.
