    sahi, best (Y) 2 weeks are pretty safe in my opinion
    Link
  • Shary Bhallu TC Shary Bhallu TC:
    however its important to know that we take social distancing and masking very seriously in the workplace, so that might also be a factor in how other people didn't contract it...
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    they're even suggesting 10 days now, not the full 2 weeks, but workplaces are still cautious so i did the full 2 week quarantine

    hmm the PCR test can pick up some RNA, and you may potentially carry it for a few more weeks or months but it won't affect your own body, but it could infect others though.
