Has any fellow Angeleno also dodged Covid this whole time? Somehow my partner and I have not yet contracted it. We both work from home, that’s probably a huge factor. Edited to add: we get tested regularly and they’ve all come back negative (shoutout to Kaiser and the long test lines lol)

45k known. Half of my family has tested positive via at-home kits and can’t report a positive diagnosis.

I’ve avoided covid this long, but working at an LAUSD school is definitely how I’m getting it.

Well I'm triple vaxxed and hit by Omicron. I should feel safe for at least a week or so till there's a new variant.

After our big rain, I got my regular seasonal allergies. Almost over the productive cough, but it's embarrassing af to be hacking in public. I'm tempted to shout: "I don't have Covid, I just smoke a lot of weed!"

I hate to be cynical but it just seems like everyone is gonna get it at this point... Just make sure you're are as protected as you can be.

I'm not sure if I had delta or omicron in mid-december, but even a mild case is really tough. I regretted holding off on my booster after that lol. Almost all of my friends who got a booster and have tested positive told me they were asymptomatic or had a headache and sniffles at worse.

In case omicron mutates or something and because its going to be mandated where I work and go to school on 2/​1, got my booster yesterday. Everyones different but booster side effects were waaaaaaaay easier than having the real thing without a boost. Highly recommend if you haven't yet. stay safe LA.
