Default Covid / In house or close family exp.

Last Wednesday my 16 year old daughter was at her boyfriends house and was exposed to boyfriends mom who didn't know she was positive . We (her and I) got tested Thursday to satisfy my employer . Got results yesterday . Me negative / Ella positive . So now here we are . Family of 5 . Daughter positive test but zero symptoms . Me , my wife and two sons feel fine as of now . Wife and 2 boys tested yesterday and are waiting on results . Now my employer wants a negative test from my daughter and me to wait until next week and be tested again with negative before going back to the office . I can get 90 % of my work done at home so not a big deal . Wife however is very nervous / anxious about us contracting it . We are taking zinc, vitamin C , D . Anyone been down this road yet and have any suggestions other than limiting exposure , washing hands etc . Not overly worried as most experiences I have heard about liken it to mild to moderate cold/flu symptoms and we are a week in with a positive case and all 5 of us feel fine so far . I am 46 , wife 38 , girl 16 and boys 14 and 12 .

Back in April we had a family dinner at my mom's house. My niece (23), who is a care giver in a nursing home was there. A week later she tests positive. My 69 year old brother in law tested positive. My 53 year old sister tested positive. My Mom, 75, tested positive. Everyone else tested negative.

The 23 year felt a little under the weather but recovered in a week or so. My sister was sick for a few weeks and fully recovered. The two older family members were hospitalized due to breathing problems. My mom ended up with pneumonia. Both recovered.

From our families experience, Covid is not really any worse than any other type of flu/respiratory illness.

Prayers for a fast and complete recovery for your family.

Survival rate for the virus is atleast 99.8%.

survival rate for your families ages group combines is going to be about 99.999645%.

as long as you don’t have copd or something, you’re gonna be just fine. Don’t buy into the hype.

get well soon!

My son came home from work with fever and chills a few weeks back.
Sent him to his room only allowed out to use bathroom.
He tested positive and pretty much stayed in his room for 2 weeks.
I disinfected everything he came in contact with.
My other son used our bathroom during this time .
I did have to stay out of work for 2 weeks for contact .We all tested 2 weeks after his positive and were negative .

Thank y'all for the responses . Fingers crossed we all stay asymptomatic . DHEC just called earlier to get trace info for my daughter . So far we are seven almost 8 days in and no symptoms to be found . Daughter will retest Saturday as that is 10 days . My employer wants me to wait to test until early-mid next week to be on the safe side as I can work from anywhere but if our inside guys get sick and are out we would have a shit show on our hands ....

Hum Drum is a great description. My workplace has had two positive cases and both times (even though one never worked in the office) they told everyone to go home for two weeks and wait for further intel.

It's a pain in the ass but my college aged son taught me about "venmo" and "dead drops" so we never ran out of the essentials.

So... your 69 and 53 year old family members end up in the hospital and your mom is diagnosed with pneumonia and you think Covid is not any worse than any other type of flu type illness? I guess I am glad that the flu has never has never hit my family like that!

In case you aren't aware, the annual flu kills between 40 and 60 thousand Americans EVERY YEAR, for many years now.

Not one mask to be seen...

Maybe, Like I said, glad it never hit my family like that.
It might be normal, just never heard in my lifetime anything like it. Certainly not where where multiple people in the same family/party/friends hospitalized with some dying. I guess I am glad I have lived sheltered life.

Richard so in 4 months covid knocks out 152,000 and we were locked down while many remain isolated. That flu comparison is idiotic and not linear . If the country would have kept frolicking around like you Richard we could have hit 300k deaths by now

The virus rolled through our household mid-July and we've all recovered (mid-30s with twin 2 year olds). Symptoms were minor congestion, exhaustion first several days, no real fever in any of us, temporary loss of smell and taste in both my wife and I, and that appears to be about it so far. Today was 2 weeks from my first symptoms and I feel great. I know that's not the case for everyone that gets it, but thankful our family doesn't appear to have suffered any significant issues from our illnesses. Best of luck to you and your family.
