  1. Just received my call - I am also NEGATIVE!!! And, yes, @phoenix_dream - also the answer we anticipated, but great to confirm, with all this madness. That said, people please continue to show social distancing and stay diligent. Things have slowed down in Canada, but not so much in the U.S. We want to cruise next January..... Stay healthy, stay home as much as possible, wash your hands... you all know the routine... let's 'Just Do It'
  2. My DH got the call about 30 minutes ago, and he is NEGATIVE!!! However, I've not yet received my call... was waiting for both before posting....
  3. Thank you mayleeman! We were finally contacted and have an appointment for our test tomorrow. Then, 3-4 days for results. We'll then also be at the 2 week mark anyway, but will at least be able to confirm that my DHs cough was not a 'mild' case, which was the concern.
  4. We STILL have not been contacted to get the test, so we are going to assume that they are less concerned with us than others. We're still in quarantine, but at this point, consider it self-inflicted. My DHs cough is almost gone now. I'm sure there is little to no concern that we brought home anything more than a cough. 🤷‍♀️
  5. He came home with the cough. At that time, there was an issue if you had several symptoms, such as cough AND fever. Then, of course... things changed. 3 weeks later, it was only one symptom. Regardless... ALL cruisers should be concerned, not just those off the Reflection. I do not apologize for worrying anyone. EVERYONE should be very concerned.
  6. We have yet to be contacted to get appt for test, and it's been over a week. I think, since there is a shortage, they decided we were not high priority, since we arrived home BEFORE all s*** broke loose. We are still staying in quarantine, to be on the safe side.
  7. Yes, it's the same for him - we think it's the flying. We're at four weeks home today. It is subsiding, but still there! Just bad timing, as no one wants to be around him (except me, of course 😁)with what's going on, and you can't blame them. AND, we still have not been contacted to be tested, so home we stay, for now.
  8. Thanks for the info - seems to be a product in high demand at this time... almost $37 for 4 ozs😬
  9. Nice to hear. Challenging times for everyone. Happy that they made you 'right'
  10. The past few weeks, about to be months, have been a very tremulous time for every one. In every country. I do not believe there will be a single individual on this continent that will not be directly affected by Covid19. Hopefully... not health affected. But, for certain financially affected. This is a good time to sit back and: (1) Count your blessings, if, financially, you can ride this out (2) Count your blessings, if, health-wise, you have been unaffected The best thing we can do is be cognizant of the ever changing requirements, as dictated by our governments. They can only do as well as the science is giving them. AND, the scientists are doing their best. And, it is changing daily. Please be kind to yourself, by protecting yourself in the way that you've been instructed. Please be kind to your neighbours, by doing the same. Please be kind to the people you know that may need your help... the elderly... the quarantined... the self-isolated. This really is a time to reflect and come together. Whether that means 'staying away' or reaching out. P.S. Currently under gov't quarantine as the result of being on a cruise ship PRIOR to the outbreak, but hubby came home with a nasty 'dry' cough that will not go away.
  11. You are correct - no my DH does not have a fever - it was his persistent dry cough and the fact that we'd recently traveled, on a cruise ship, that garnered our quarantine. Had we not traveled, there would not have been a concern at that time. Now, a few days later, is again different. As for online ordering of food - I do this weekly, but the website was hung up. I went to a different store and managed to get a home delivery for Wednesday (order placed on Saturday!).
  12. Yup, I would! We're just not quite there as yet. We've had a ton of offers, so we're covered, in the event that things get that far, which I do not believe they will. We will continue to stay at home and enjoy each others company, hopefully get our test soon, and carry on to help others, once we are deemed healthy!
  13. We do, I just have a problem asking someone to stand in line 🙂 I was finally able to get an online order in, for delivery on Wednesday and will manage until then. But thank you!
