Can someone explain this to me, please?

Previously we were told not to test for 3 months after having Covid. It was apparently unreliable

No we`re being told to test after 6 or 7 days. And if it is OK we can get back down the pub.

How does that work?

I assume this is testing for those who have had to self isolate after being in contact with someone who has tested positive rather than for those who have definitely had covid.

That`s not right, Aylesbury. Rules seemed to have changed?

BTW, I`m going to be in Aylesbury for 3 nights - 24th, 25th & 26th January. I`ll be at a loose end 26th January

Pie and a Pint?

Not sure if that`s old guidance or not? The 90 day thing relates to whether it`s a new or existing infection. A further positive within 90 days is considered to be the same "case". Beyond 90 days it`s considered new.

My partner and son both had covid and were told that they would always test positive within the next 90 days.

The initial positive test can be used as a "passport" as they are no longer considered infectious.

As Aylesbury says the testing on the 6th and 7th day is for self-isolating close contacts.

My partner tested negative (LFT) then positive (PCR) on the same day. She did a (LFT) yesterday to show her friend that it would come back positive, as it is within the 90 days, but it actually came back negative. I would not trust a negative (LFT) if I were showing symptoms.

Here`s the link as reported on the BBC.

It appears to apply to England only but is reported as people infected rather than close contacts. It just doesn`t make sense alongside previous guidance.

The reason I was looking at this was our eldest tested on day 91 and was positive, with Covid symptoms so we think she likely has managed to catch it immediately (sibling was negative but is now positive).

Bit crap...I spent last Christmas attached to a hospital bed, so was hoping we could have some semblance of a normal Christmas this year. bottom .

It doesn`t make sense because it has nothing to do with public health.

Too many people are off work for 10 days when they test positive, even if they are very marginally positive results. By allowing lateral flow tests on Day 7 they will be able to get them back to work faster and minimise disruption.

The guidance is all odd. You can come back after 7 days in England rather than 10 in Scotland. At the same time they`ve changed the self-certification time from 7 days to 28 days to help out GPs. So I could catch COVID and be told to come back on day 7 but then say I`m I`ll and stay off for 27 days.

A wee bit OT, but I`m just back from San Francisco and everyone and I mean everyone, were wearing masks in every shop/mall and if you were in a restaurant/coffee shop, you had to show your vaccination status, which again, everyone was happy to do. Absolutely no issues whatsoever. No pricks moaning that their liberties were being snatched away from them. A quick show of your app and in you go.

Why are we so fvckin precious?

Oh and btw, Metallica were off the scale

It absolutely was mate. All the hassle, all the extra expense, all the worry, it all disappeared as soon soon as AC/DC and then Ecstasy Of Gold kicked in.

Prime are streaming both shows over the weekend, if you are interested
