Nose feeling a bit tickle and got a headache that’s eased after paracetamol but still there. Wouldn’t normally think twice but it’s the first time I’ve felt a bit off for months and I’m worrying a bit as meant to be out with friends tonight and tomorrow and they are people I haven’t seen since March and had been so looking forward to it.
I feel well enough to go out tonight but would you? (No temp, I’ve just checked)

I would go out with friends.

Lilybet1980 Sat 12-Sep-20 17:15:34

Yes. I’d go.

Yes go

I would go. I guess if any of your friends are very vulnerable you could ask what they think but I'd definitely go.

Thank you. It’s silly how all of this makes you question even the smallest of Day to day things!

Just stay 2m away from them like you’re supposed to!

I wouldn't go.

My sister in law met up with her cousin who was just like you - just a headache no temp.

My sis in law got covid from her cousin and passed it to her gran.

Track and trace had to shut down a restaurant and two other businesses for deep cleans - as the people in the other businesses got covid from the cousin and PHE was called!

So this cousin with her headache infected so many people including an 80 year old lady!

Just not worth

Can you point to any official guidance saying people with headaches should not go out?

I definitely wouldn't go. Why risk it? Hopefully you haven't got it, but how will you feel if you have, and not only have to deal with that, but also having possibly passed it on to your friends due to the decision you made?

And as SaltWatcher says, they could then pass it on to others continuing the chain of transmission.

People can be asymptomatic carriers and pass it on. So nobody should go anywhere by that measure?

Yes I would go. We can't stop living for headaches. Enjoy!

Why risk it?

Because a headache in the absence of anything else is not one of the reasons you need to stay home. She hasn’t seen these friends since March and there’s no good reason not to go.
