The test results are taking their time too. My daughter was tested at 10:30am Sunday, as of 8:30am Tuesday, still no results.Oh right.
When I went on there, the ones released at 8pm were for the same evening. The next day appointments were just listed.
I suppose it could have changed or got overwhelmed in the last week or so.
The thing that bothers me though, is that if people were actually doing what they're meant to (ie. Social distancing and hand cleaning etc) then these germs and coughs and colds shouldn't really be as prevalent as they are right now!For 5 months kids have been off school, they've not been able to pass their germs to each other.
They go back and the germs have a field day and they pass coughs colds and whatever else to each other like wildfire. Normal.
Kids don't social distance at school or nursery. They pick up colds and coughs really easily, especially after being in isolation for 5 months.The thing that bothers me though, is that if people were actually doing what they're meant to (ie. Social distancing and hand cleaning etc) then these germs and coughs and colds shouldn't really be as prevalent as they are right now!
I didn't know of one person who had a cold or bug during lockdown.
My daughter goes back to nursery today, really can't be bothered with germs again. lol
Never got a test last night and no postal tests available.We will find out at 8pm tonight!
Yea, good news, I live in Tendring, be even less when the daytrippers all leave at the end of the summer!Results finally back 68 hours after the test. All clear as expected, so we're all back to work and school today with strict instructions not to cough.
Any kids found coughing at our kids' school are immediately removed to a quarantine area, given a mask and a bottle of water, and collected by a parent immediately.
Seems a little harsh, but I guess it's all or nothing with this nonsense.
It should also be pointed out that we live in the Tendring area which has the lowest rate of infection:
