I guess to carry on with this thread I will share my experience (so far) - it is still playing out as I first felt a sympton (headache and dizzziness) late on Friday. By Sunday morn, I had all of the symptoms in common between covid and the flu - headache, congestion, sore threat, fever, chills, muscle aches, mysterious pains appearing and disappearing in random parts of the body, coughing, etc. Couldn't get in for a test on Sunday - they were booked solid, but I got in on Monday and was screened for covid, flu, and strep. Covid was the winner. I am *hoping* that I don't have the long lingering symptoms which a number of folks seems to be suffering, but I guess only time will tell. I still have my senses of taste and smell, but some friends who contracted the disease say they didn't lose theirs until a week or more into it. As I am in mid-50s and not in a high risk group, my turn for vaccination isn't coming until April or May if they keep to the schedule. I presume that I will get whatever vaccination they are offering at that time - with the spreading of the various mutations, we may need all the luck we can get to try to avoid a second infection from one of these other variants.
Though I've had it worse than some, I am also very grateful that I've had it much better than others with this crazy virus. I don't know what this summer may bring for motorcycle rally chances, but I feel that even if they are "on" things will be significantly subdued over what they were in years past.
Do your best to stay healthy, my friends! Ultimately, as I was telling someone just before I contracted it, even though we are being careful and following protocols, eventually, that statistics are going to catch up with pretty much all of us given enough time.
