Never had covid, that I know of anyway as don’t regularly test only if I was Feeling I’ll or been in close contact. We’ve had covid in the household twice and only have a small house so couldn’t really isolate but I didn’t catch either time. Not complaining but thinking there can’t be many left that haven’t had. Interestingly neither my mum or dad has had either

Most people I know haven't had it. I haven't, DH hasn't, Only one person in my street of 23 homes, most of the school mums I know and their kids, my extended family, work colleagues etc. Very few have had it. Just 3 or 4 maybe.

DD and her fiancé had it a year ago, but said it was no worse than a cold ... That's because they had the common sense to get vaccinated. One of DD's fiancé's cousins got it who has never been vaccinated. Ended up in hospital on a ventilator. Go figure!

However I don’t see it as a badge of honour. It could happen to anybody.

I miraculously keep dodging it. I've been around at least three people who later tested positive and still I haven't caught it.

I haven’t (knowingly) had it, worked retail all the way through. Mum hasn’t either but she’s a a bit of a hermit. Most of my colleagues have had it at least once. I have the advantage(?) of no kids etc so no one bringing school germs home etc.

DC3 he's had the most tests but none positive. The rest of us have had it once or twice.

PIL apparently but I don't believe them.

My 20y dd doesn't appear to have had it. This is despite going to university in summer 2020, attending festivals and night-clubs, living with covid positive flatmates, living at home whilst I had it (twice) and dh had it at another time.

She's had a couple of antibody tests and she has had no virus-acquired antibodies either time. As I'm clinically vulnerable she tests if at home and feeling ill (I get free tests so it's no bother) and she has never tested positive, on LFT or PCR tests. She is fully vaccinated and had her booster.



I wonder if some people just seem to be immune to it.

Interestingly me and dh never caught from one another. We both caught it in our work places instead and didn't pass it between us despite not isolating from one another.

I haven’t yet. We’ve had it in our house at least 6 times (possibly 9 but tests weren’t available) and I worked in A&E at the height of the pandemic. I’ve had antibody tests and tested daily for work since tests were available so am pretty certain I haven’t.
That said, I had a close contact 3 days this week so it may be my time soon…

I have never had it. I was extremely careful in the beginning, sanitizer, masks, followed all the rules, regularly testing before meeting anyone etc.

Still cautious but haven't worn a mask in ages other than in medical settings. Still use sanitizer but only the odd time. Triple vaccinated.

I have been a close contact a number of times and even at a wedding when most people picked it up. It's odd but I don't believe for one minute I'm immune or anything, just lucky.

I know several people who were the same but got it for the first time in the last 2 weeks.

My sister has only just caught it for the first time this week.
My young nephew still hasn't had it either.
His dad/sister's husband had it earlier this year.

Again, appears to have been caught at work for them and not passed between them at home 🤷‍♀️

DH and I! I've literally kissed covid and still never tested positive

DS had it twice. I still hugged him and kissed him and never caught it.

It's a mystery!

Well I have never tested positive but last Christmas I was very poorly with a high temp and sore throat. I was exhausted for weeks afterwards too.
I tested negative 3 times but DH and DD did get positive tests despite only being slightly unwell
DS has never tested positive either despite being sent home from school a few times when people in his class had it, including the person he sat next to most of the time.

No I've never had it even though it's been in the house 3 separate times, I've not been remotely careful either. Obviously I may have had it and not known but I've had 2 separate antibody tests 9 months apart and both were negative.

I could have written your post! I’ve never had it, despite working in a school throughout. We had covid in the house twice and I shared a bed with DH whilst he had it. I tested twice a week when tests were available, daily when it was in the house and when I felt unwell. Everyone I know has had it except me and my parents!

Next door to me the husband caught it and was really unwell for a couple of weeks. The wife, not a sniffle.

Neither me nor my partner have had Covid as far as we know, but we very rarely tested. Two sets of friends who live nearby haven't had it either. We are doing all the things we did pre Covid, so haven't done anything in particular to avoid it.

Me. I'm still slightly careful and wear a mask in shops. Don't feel ill, test every so often. Office is large and well ventilated. However I am back at the gym which will be my undoing.
Teen DD hasn't had it either.

Teen DS had it in January but we caught it very early and he was fine in his room, windows open when he was downstairs and I wore a mask.
