My husband has Covid.

He tested positive yesterday using an at-home test. We both had two Moderna vaccines in 2021 and a Pfizer booster several months ago.

Son-in-law #1 came here last week on Wednesday and daughter #1 on Thursday to clear out their house for showings as it's for sale. Husband went to North Carolina on Monday to deal with some financial things for his step-mother and Monday night, he started to feel ill and came home Tuesday.

I was away from our home from Sunday taking care of our granddaughter. I asked how he was feeling and he said he "had a cold." Sheesh. When I came home yesterday, I walked in wearing a KN95 mask, brought a test kit and he was positive. Except for cold symptoms and an occasional cough, he feels okay. No trouble breathing. He'll have a drive-through test at CVS this afternoon to confirm and called his doctor just to check in. Son-in-law and daughter both tested negative yesterday. I continue to feel fine.

He's isolating in the lower level and will for at least five days. I'm not going to babysit as usual next Monday out of an abundance of caution and will test at CVS on 2/2 before I go back on 2/7.
