After obeying all the rules I caught it around the 17/2. Tested each day and and yesterday 25/2 got negative , but wife now has it . Today my test showed two lines which probably mean I have it still. I have had the mask on all day indoors to protect my wife and the other preventions and still she got it.

My feeling is that if you et it anyone living with you is likely to get it no matter what you do unless they are vaccinated as that van help them escape. From what I have seen, once it get into a household there is a very good chance it will spread although some people do avoid it more due to immunity than precautions.
Not had a positive result but the tests we have say check between 15 and 30 minutes but no longer than that.

That’s 704 days ago . Times two are you seriously telling us you have used 1408 LFT tests🤔🤔. Don’t forget they won’t be freely available soon😁

I think I have only tested myself 5 times since the Covid started, the wife is about the same, and we have 2 boxes of test kits left, and one PCR test kit for myself as I am suitable for this special drug for Covid, due to PolyMyalgia Rhumatica. And I thought Mrs H would get a kit as she was told to "Sheild" but I was not.

Today we both have it still . My symptoms have been eyes ache, running nose, tired ,feeling weak. My wife has hardly any of the symptoms . We have not been anywhere since the virus started, just me shopping etc and camping on our own .Three days before I tested positive I went to library by bus and a guy behind was coughing quite a lot ,maybe?. We have had all vaccines since 12/20 and have lost count as to how many flow test I have done.

Well my wife tested positive for it 4weeks ago. (works in schools and has to test every day). We simply didn't bother with any of the precautions that are recommended because-well honestly it isn't that practical. No mask, same bed same towel same amount of fussing the dog-we carried on as normal. She even accidentally coughed on me at one point as I got 'under her feet in the kitchen'. I was totally negative every day thereafter . We both think we had it when it first raised its ugly head, and we're both jabbed and boosted. Weird. She wasn't that ill tbh; lost her sense of taste first then smell then bad cold symptoms.

This is a strange animal for sure.
My wife (a primary school teacher) tested positive at the beginning of Feb, so took herself off to the spare bedroom to self isolate. However we only have one bathroom so had to share that with me and our two daughters. Obviously I ran round looking after her, delivering food and cups of tea etc.TBH I wasn't particularly careful as I fully expected to catch it or already have caught it in the days before she tested positive.
She was pretty poorly for a few days but then it was a case of having no energy.
She tested from day 5 as per policy and was still testing positive on day 10.
None of the rest of in the house caught it. Which really surprised me considering how contagious it is supposed to be.
I also thought it would be better to get this variant sooner than later as it it milder if you have had a recent vaccine.

That's a pattern we've observed for a while. Several friends and family members have had one person with the virus but the rest of the household has not become infected.

I see that Imperial Colleges React study now shows Covid retreating in the under 54 age group with R<1, but in the over 54 age group cases are rising. The reason being likely to increased socialising. Must say when my wife and I went out for a lunch last Friday the pub was full, mainly with “us oldies” doing their utmost to get the hospitality industry back onto its feet. 😀

He certainly does, perhaps something in the Platinum Birthday Honours list would be suitable recognition for his services to the drinks industry here and overseas.

For peoples information, we are both triple jabbed, on Friday last we went to a neighbors funeral. On Sunday morning we both had slight cold symptoms, we were due to go to York, so both of us done LFT's. Both positive. I done a PCR test which I had at home.these were reported on the NHS covid app. Monday morning the NHS covid contacted us, so check on our symptoms and see if we needed to go to hospital, Negative on that.

We have isolated ourselfs from others through choice, we still go out and walk the dog but do not socialise, LFT again tomorrow, then hopefully get out as normal.

For us it was just a very mild cold.

Seems a long while ago when you were quarantining items delivered and then swabbed them down. Glad it was only cold-like.
