  1. I'm no longer clear what lesson I was supposed to have been learned..... But I am ready simply to concede. "I love Big Brother."

  3. There's an unexcited irony to the title of this thread. I'm pretty sure something has happened at this juncture.
  4. It depends on the goals of the test. For our family of four, having two of us take the Roche test with over 99% specificity - and having them both return negative - provides me with some reasonable assurance about the unlikelihood that our family was exposed. I mean, sure, general epistemological limitations and the necessarily-acknowledged possibility for/improbability of two false-negatives can draw those results into question. But unless someone wants to explain to me otherwise, it's good enough for me to support some decisions. If the goal is to form public policy, however, based on one-time antibody screening of populations otherwise with low incidence of COVID exposure, then, yeah, the value of the current tests is limited.

  6. Totally agree with that. That’s why my wife took it, too. Two tests with same outcome seems highly reliable. Had both been positive, my older son & I would have gone together next. Now we don’t need to go. We only now need to figure out WTF to do with summer, fall, winter... like everybody else.
  7. Just to round out the story-telling, we got back our antibody tests today, and unfortunately, they were negative for the wife & boy. Oh well....
  8. For my part, I've been indulging cocktail hour daily. So, there's my liver to worry about. I doubt I'm alone.
  9. Oh yeah - everyone's fine. It's just going to be extremely eye-opening if in fact one or more of us are antibody positive. Kid was discharged the next evening without any firm diagnosis. If it was COVID, then he should have antibodies. He'd also be one of the earliest cases of the pediatric version that gets more & more attention with each passing day. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/19/parenting/pmis-coronavirus-children.html?searchResultPosition=1
