The doctor -- my doctor -- saw me over the phone this morning. She called in some prescriptions and put me on the list to get a letter that will let me, as an essential worker (and people thought I'd never amount to anything!), get tested.
Haven't seen the letter yet, which should trigger an e-mail notification when they file it online; her office staff is mostly working from home, too, so they're not as quick as usual.
If the test is positive, then I'll be essentially out sick for a couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, I'm in bed, with the cats and the TV and computers. I had to dig out the Microsoft Surface Pro that usually lives in my briefcase for the doctor's appointment: according to their website the digital doc stuff is only tested and known to run on Firefox or Chrome and I didn't feel like being a test case for Safari. My desktop machine is cameraless; I don't routinely use one and it would just be another point of vulnerability. But they're handy on the portable devices and a fat rubber band blindfolds them if needed.
