Hands up if you caught Covid there?

Started feeling crap on the Monday evening. Slowly got worse.   Did a test on Tuesday - negative

Did a test on Wednesday - positive.    This will be my second time and feels just as bad as the first, which was right back at the beginning of the pandemic, over 2 years ago.   Met Fat Boy Slim while at Glasto, reckon he gave it to me.

Two of my group have, few others have a cough/sore throat including me. I've had it and all jabs so hoping mines just a bit of post fest exhaustion but can't get my hands on a test

Not testing not going to test, not going to help perpetuate another mass panic and media sensationalising this (as they already are, thanks to all those testing for that) that will no doubt end in more restrictions, more freedoms lost and more livelihoods fucked including many in live music..

Have a word with yourselves, many of you have got nothing but cold symptoms it sounds if that so why couldn't you just leave it at that? why on earth would you become part of the covid testing process again?

I feel fine but my wife tested positive this evening so I've done an LFT. First time it's ever had the two lines, managed to avoid it even when working on the COVID testing sites. Just a little tired like I am after most festivals. We're the first two out of our group of 24 to test positive!

I’ll be praying you over come this horrible bout of being “a little tired”. Must be awful for you.

My thoughts. Nearly every festival I've been to I've come home feeling like this, if not a LOT worse. Just this year it has a label instead of festival flu.

"covid process".. 😂.. is that like caring whether you're spreading a highly contagious virus or not

Problem is someone gets the covid green light and is happy to go around spreading the other contagious virus they have.  This point seems to be missed 😛

I stay over at my mum's house at some point every week to make sure she's OK.  She is very frail and clinically vulnerable.  Covid may not kill me, but it is still dangerous to her. 

Covid is is so transmissible because is spreads before symptoms appear.  So I am taking tests to help protect my mum.

Caring for people you love.  Empathy.  Not being a dick. 

Does that explain why some people might still be 'part of the covid testing process?'

My reason for testing is that my father in law is in his mid 70s and he's asthmatic. Do I have your permission to try to avoid giving him COVID? I feel really bad for not checking with you before.

I'm feeling pretty rough tbh, it's definitely not a typical festival comedown!

Have slept 15+ hours a day, lots of couging and feeling very dazed. Not much good for anything but lying in bed, watching TV and a bit of web browsing.

Really sucks - was looking forward to going on a health kick this week, instead I'm festering in bed!

Was going to leave this alone, but what a completely irresponsible take. As several people remarked below, there are vulnerable people in our lives who would appreciate not contracting this virus as it's still killing 50+ people a day. 

Selfish attitude not to test, it's like sticking your fingers in your ears and pretending there's no problem, when there is still definitely a problem and it is still definitely killing people who would otherwise still be with us. A "festival cold" does not spread like wildfire and kill people. 

Really selfish.

(I await the troll-like responses with dread. )

Grow up, you pathetic child. Nobody knows that I have it apart from me, my family, and my mates.

If I get sick, I'd like to know what I have. And I'd rather not just pass it around willy nilly if I can avoid doing so.

yeah, I'll be visiting my mum and dad this weekend, boith over 90, and seeing lots of other family, some who have weakened immune systems, so I'd really rather not bring covid to the gathering.

All those testing to protect others absolute hero’s in my eyes …. Wether it be someone you know or someone you don’t that’s vulnerable in society , we have a tool we can use for covid at least . Nice one for being socially responsible and looking out for others . I choose my risk by going and getting covid … many others didn’t ….. anyways fortunately I don’t seem to have things too bad … cough has definately eased today a few night sweats last night hopefully an upward path from now

Doing a lateral flow test at home to see if you have COVID is not being part of any process, it's not being reported to anyone. It's just useful to know, so that you don't go round spreading a virus that is potentially still dangerous to some people, and many people have some spare tests lying around at home still, so why not?

 

Anyway, I have mild cold symptoms since yesterday and did a lateral flow test this morning, a very faint line appeared. So it seems I've caught it - as far as I know, for the first time! A couple of others in my group have it too.

God, covid debate really brings out the worst in people. 

It is fine to be angry with the media for sensationalising and creating fear and doom mongering. It is fine to be angry with the government for their mishandling of the pandemic and blatant corruption over the past 2 years handing multi million contracts to their mates. 
 

It is not fine to speak to people like shit and throw venomous or derogatory insults at them because they decided to take a covid test, or because they want to take precautions.

Same shit different day.

Can you dickheads please start your own thread where you can lecture people about their misgivings in having a public conscience? Would be great to keep this one focused on who has caught COVID.

Cheers

Tested negative today so pretty sure I'm in the clear.  Bit annoying really, could have really done with another week off work to readjust to being in the real world again.

 

I don't see the problem with testing yourself.  It's not like people were picky about what they shoved up their nose over the festival so can't see why putting a swab up there causes so many issues

well there is plenty of stuff which is more and less contagious you should probably be worried about spreading if you think testing for covid is important..

Do you think flu is less to worry about than covid in the grand scheme ?   A disease that literally kills millions ?  If its not covid its highly likely to be flu...  Dam even in the common cold isn't something you really want to give a vulnerable person.

My point isn't to go around spreading covid - my point is using a covid test as a green light to going out is really stupid - and so the test itself is pointless as you shouldn't be going out if ill full stop anyway.
