You need an option for any of the above.
Contact with a known positive is one good reason.
Another way to be cautious would be because you wanted to be safe visiting someone else. Of course, that is not foolproof. Its still possibly a false negative or just not enough in your system to test positive yet. But, IMO its better than a complete assumption.
I don't understand? You mean none of the above?
Ha, my bad. I misread the title. No reason to add another option.
Title is "why do people get tested?" But the poll question is different, and specific to an individual who got tested.
I got tested when I was exposed to positive people and had been feeling sick "cold like symptoms". I had a bad dry cough, the worst I have ever had. I was coughing like crazy and just could NOT scratch that itch. The third day I felt like full schitt, run down, exhausted and just achy. I got tested, it was negative, I stayed away from work and everyone else except my family, who were all sick before me, until we were all back to normal. My wife shows antibodies now though. I haven't been tested for those though.
Never did check my temp, could have had a mild fever though I suppose. That was March/April timeframe.
After a very long night with a high fever, tossing my cookies, and sitting on the can, my doctor suggested that I get tested. Fortunately, it turned out to be something the wife cooked (or didn't cook) that did me in.
You'd think that after more than forty years, I'd be immune.
Required to have my surgery.
I'd like to know why the lines with thousands of cars to get tested? Is that so they can go on a plane or travel? Doesn't make sense to me, you can catch it after you get tested.
I have not. No reason to at this point.
I MAY have to get tested when my shoulder gets replaced. I will if I feel ill or if I find out I was exposed.
I needed it for a surgery in June. I'll need another one for another surgery next month.
Wife and son had one for hospital procedures.
You need to sleep with one eye open.
In today's society, I'm sure some people are doing it because its fashionable.
Have you ever had that giant Q-tip tickle the inside of your skull?
