Wagolynn,
that’s scary even if you know the odds are small.
Hope all goes well.

Hi Rik,
I will have another Covid test on Wednesdays (they are going to do them every week at the dialysis unit, until not required) so we will see.

Patients are supposed to wash their hands before entering the unit, weigh in, then wash their hands again followed by rubbing alcohol hand cleaner on before going to their dialysis position.
About 50% do but no one is showing them what a 20 sec wash looks like, and no one is actually asking patients to do this, there are just notices up in the waiting room.
At the moment, patients are encouraged not to come early to minimise any time spent, and numbers in the waiting room, so notices don't get read.

There is a similar situation with masks, we are supposed to mask up at home, and stay masked until we are back home but again no one has explained the idea is to cover mouth, and nose.

Ah well, I suppose it's all about normal for the UK.
