You may have had it before isolation or got it during from deliveries or as soon as you leave get it.

Well we’ve been in for over 2 weeks. Since yesterday DS has had a fever and very lethargic. Might not be be covid but obviously we’ll isolate anyway! But if it is yeah it’s possible!

I'm not sure what you mean - do you mean what is the likely hood of you developing it now if you continue to self isolate?

You might not have it now but as soon as you go anywhere you could get it

Emandes really!
Did you wear mask etc?

That's so unfortunate!

I've not been to supermarket yet but plan on wearing gloves, mask etc

You would show symptoms by now. I think there are very few cases where it's been been longer than 14 days incubation.

But once you encounter any other human you do face that risk again.

I wondered this, is there now more or less chance of catching it in the supermarket than just before the lockdown? Is the proportion of people in the shop who are carrying it higher or lower now than in the week before lockdown?

Although you're in isolation that is still risk (assuming you receive post/parcels, shopping deliveries etc.)

Box I'd say far higher now.

If you look at the C-10 tracker website, it gives you an idea of the percentage of people reporting symptoms in your area.

Obviously it works better the more people use it.

I was trying to convince myself that as a teacher going to school this week I was less likely to get it now than before lockdown! Anything to give myself hope! I really don’t want to go out there!
