Yay, horribly overpriced tests with a horrendous accuracy rate billed to each of us.  The fiddling continues while Rome burns.

Some need them to be able to go back to work, so this is a way to get some of them delivered without out of pocket.

but now we can go back to work with a positive test, as long as we're vaccinated? 

 

So if you have the vaccine....but you catch the virus in spite of being vaccinated, you can still go to work, because you're vaccinated.

 

You really can't make this ! up.

True.  This thread was just for those that feel they need the test, and want to save some money.  As for the validity of everything surrounding it, that is different.

My boss, who is very much a “walk the party line” person, was just ! because she said these at home tests will encourage people who test positive to not disclose that they are positive.

 

In other words, for her if you have a positive test you should be put on a list

I did order mine yesterday during their "quiet/soft" opening of the website...not sure what brand they are issuing.

I've been keeping a couple of the 2 packs of the Binax Now...seemed like that was what actual hospitals, etc had been using...and we've wanted to test a couple times now..over the holidays etc...before we risked exposure to others...we had no symptoms, yet we had been around  folks that turned up with it a few days later, and didn't want to risk taking it to others, etc..and this last cold bug that got us, made us want to test..so I'm down to just one 2-pack reaming in my zombie preps..the tests have been hard to find locally since the holiday rush, but I would like to get a couple more on hand for future...no telling how accurate, but at least I'm being polite to do what I can to check before I take stuff to the family.

 

yes, I think much of this has been panic for the opportunity to change the world...but I like having some tools to keep me out of the hospitals.

 

when we've done virtual dr visits for my mom and my wife, we are able to provide temp, O2, BP, etc with the tools we own here at the house..and since we have other tools like a nebulizar and months of supply chems for it...we can treat ourselves about as well as they would in the ER if we wanted to go sit for 10-16 hrs waiting on help there among the masses...no thanks

I would agree you can do as well as an ER if things stay reasonable.  I personally wouldn't go unless I really thought things were going downhill and I'd probably wait too long.
