Need additional choices. "Yes because I know someone who is/was positive." "No because I have self quarantined."

For those who "66.4% No, why would I?". then how do you know you don't have it, and on contaminating the rest of us? Are you the same ones demanding hair salons reopen to color your roots while you refuse to wear a mask?

In my case, it's because we've been staying almost totally at home and having very minimal contact outside the house and then only at a distance and with masks. I understand what you're saying steelersfan and I'm sure you're correct in a lot of cases but there's more than one reason why someone would check no.

you can still get it even with minimal contact, Mail, groceries, touching something.

Please explain the study that shows the spread through mail, groceries, and touching something. Does the virus jump from those surfaces into your breathing zone? Why not just wash your hands and keep them away from your face?[ninja]

Bosco, then you haven't been paying attention: https://health.clevelandclinic.org/tips-for-keeping-your-home-clean-in-the-time-of-covid-19/#:~:text=A%3A%20While%20that%20previously,days%20at%20ambient%20temperatures.

Why do you equate not wanting a test with not wearing a mask? I have no interest in a test. I have been observing the stay at home rules and taking universal precautions when I venture out. If I test negative I still have to wear a mask when required. If I test postive, without symptoms, I still have to wear a mask when required.[ninja]

If you test positive, you are to self quarantine so not to infect others, not go out and about your daily business.
