When negative is positive

Since arriving in Maine we have been in quarantine. We had Covid testing done in Connecticut and were awaiting test results. The rule in Maine is that you are in quarantine for either 14-days or unless you have a negative test result within 72 hours before arriving in Maine. We got tested the same day we arrived (just in Connecticut not Maine – but that is allowed).

Oddly, Scott’s results came in first, and mine followed either later in the day or next morning – Scott got a phone call and I called in. We had been warned that they can get backlogged on making the phone calls for negative test results.

What does this mean? It means that we can plan a day trip to go mountain biking or swimming in a lake – and maybe even pick up our car. It means that we can do the transfer of our stuff once it arrives. It means that by this time next week we might actually be in Nova Scotia – in quarantine but in Nova Scotia.

That being said, we are both still getting caught up on work that didn’t get done while we were on the road. We slept a lot during our first couple of days in quarantine. This last few weeks has been insane. I foolishly visualized marking papers at the end of each day. I didn’t anticipate that I’d be so tired that all I wanted to do was collapse!
