what brought about your child getting tested?He had stayed with me just before the start of my symptoms.
whom administered the test on your child and did it cost anything?I do not know, probably a doctor at one of the several urgent care clinics. It didn't cost anything.
were you all tested after the child was dropped off, or were things just presumed given the proximity?I was tested before he was dropped off. My positive test prompted his testing.
were all adults in the house still working prior to the quarantine and if any were taken out of work have their been any compensation measures put in while the quarantine is surfed out (or does the house just happen to have enough money to financially take on a "shelter in place"?All adults have been working remotely since March even before the shelter in place order. Both our offices closed and we were able to keep on working on our company-provided laptops. Consequently we didn't apply for any COVID-related relief programs.
what brought that about and did you have to pay for it?I had flu-like symptoms which is not uncommon for me in any season, but then my partner got really sick and I lost my sense of smell and taste so we went to an urgent care clinic to get tested. I did not have to pay for the test but I have a comprehensive private insurance provided by my work.
given the remote work situation of the house hold, any thoughts on what you may have done to contract COVID and is there anything you feel you could have reasonably done to prevent it?I've moved apartment 10 days ago, the moving team are the only people I have been in close contact with who I didn't know their infection status. I thought I had been careful, wore a mask at all times, didn't stay close to them, so only not moving would have prevented the infection.
after being diagnosed was there anything asked of you other than to just surf the virus out and how was/is it to be determined that you (and the house) are clear of the virus without putting others from the public at risk of contracting the virus from you?I just got off the phone with one of the local New York City public employees who are calling anyone who was reported tested positive. They gave me general recommendations as well as a timeline for when I could break isolation, but I'm going to wait a little further.
