    NO just because you may not be too bad you cN still pass it to others who may not be so lucky 

    Personally I wouldn't go out at all until I was negative

    We both had it from New Years day, was just like a bad cold but we were really tired for 2 weeks after we tested negative, I think if I was unlucky enough to catch it again I would stay at home mainly because I hate mask and I'm perfectly happy just to potter around the house.

    Yep i thought that - i wouldn't feel right going out.
    I had a phone call from a work friend??? today all has changed at our works - you can go to work if you have covid and not to ill - you only have to wear a mask when you go out of our unit - so she's traveling to work on the bus ( although we still have to wear mask's on our bus's) but can go into our local shop without one.
    When i said something about it she just said "well you always panic'd about it and we never caught it of each other when it was really bad"!!!!!!
    I'm so glad to be out of it now.
