This past Saturday my youngest son came down with symptoms of coughing, sneezing, fever, etc. My wife is a nurse and was 50/50 on whether it could be Covid-19. His elementary school would not let him attend until he passed a Covid-19 test.
My wife scheduled a test with our local Walgreens and the earliest appointment was today at 12:15. On Monday his school secretary called to inform me that the local Walmart caries over-the-counter rapid result tests.
So, my son, Brutus (our dog) and I went out to get one. Of course, they had sold out and wouldn't be getting more in for another week.
My son has been remote learning, missing his teacher/friends, worried about having Covid-19. If he were to test positive then he'd have to miss school for at least 10 days. He's been a little worried and sad.
Today he had his test and the results came back negative! We are all so very relieved.
