It’s been five days since my husband tested positive for Covid. Since then, the entire family has been testing daily, I have been sleeping on the futon couch in my study, and he has been lonely in his isolation.
His symptoms were mild (haven’t we all been tired all the time since this damnable virus started?) And he has tested negative for the last two days. The rest of us have been negative the entire time. So with five days past initial infection and no fever, we can start to mingle again. We actually ate dinner as a family tonight. What a treat!
I know lots of people that contracted Covid–especially over this past week. It’s going easier for some than for others. But it means we need to be extra careful when venturing out of the house. No more mask-free shopping. At least not until infection rates go down or I return from MAA’s MathFest.
MathFest is happening in a little over one week. It’s MAA big annual meeting. I’m doing everything I can to make my contributions the best possible and to make sure that I stay healthy so I get to attend. I’ve downloaded the conference app (Socio, both the web and mobile versions) and verified my identity on ID.me. I’m still working on uploading proof of my vaccination status. I keep trying to upload a screenshot of my digital vaccination card but it says “no QR code detected” and won’t let me proceed. I see a QR code plain as day, so I don’t understand the issue.
Perhaps its just best to wait for now and try again tomorrow. I’m tired of banging my head against this digital wall and I have someone I’d like to spend time with instead.
