I recovered my sense of smell in about 5 days

My boss took 6 weeks to get taste back

I tested positive three weeks ago - my taste and smell is just now coming back. I took a regimen of B,C and D vitamins, Claritin, ibuprofen and probably drank 10 gallons of OJ. Please take care of yourself!

Forever

3 months and half months and counting...
