I have said throughout that if well enough I would take sensible precautions.  

So going out tonight is off.

The two of us driving with the dog to a remote beach for a New Year walk is at this stage still on.

I have been at work and in shoprite after coming home on the Bus so hardly think a beach tomorrow is an issue

So you’re just breaking the law to suit your own selfish wants?

I doubt anyone believes that you’ve actually tested positive & likely more fake news

Have you not had the direction email?  You are confined to barracks just like anyone else.  I have two dogs who need walking, but will get someone else to do it. 

You may disagree with the rules, but they are not discretionary, so don't be a dick.

I doubt he's reported it. Won't want to chance adding to the numbers that he's adamant will be on the decline.

Not that anyone will care but having jut got home and tried a throat swab it says positive.  Nose still saying negative.  Same for the Mrs.

Happy new year.

Both feel fine but both had symptoms and negative tests last week.

IF this true then you really need to take a long hard look at yourself. You don't get to pick which rules you want to follow and which rules you don't in a society. 

If you are just trolling then that's just pathetic.

There is actually a serious point here about the guidance being given.

I have been testing everyday for three weeks following the LFT instructions. All negative.

Today I did one throat swab - positive.

I have since done another nose swab - negative.

If I do another nose swab and it is negative tomorrow then I am classed as all clear.

Believe what you want but I only swabbed my throat after hearing about others getting a different result and googling what guidance other places are giving.

Maybe our lot need to be be advising people to test differently since it appears omicron can evade nasal tests?

You need another PCR test and insist they swab your throat.

A PCR test with a nostril swab might still pick something up, they tend to be more sensitive though in some tests that might be due to more consistent, professional swabbing.  But the point about throat swabbing is a good one because there is some evidence that Omicron is much more prevalent in the airways rather than the lungs, so it could be that it's detectable there first.

I am bored as I can’t go out but won’t post again this evening as you lot don’t believe anything anyway.

Throat has come back positive twice, Nose negative twice this evening and once this morning.

Believe what you want but I heard of several people today who thought they felt a bit off colour so swabbed their throat and then came back positive.

My advice for what it’s worth is to swab the throat and I wouldn’t be surprised to see gov start suggesting the same.

Have a great NYE all
