    Apparently neither positive case was hospitalized, so,just 2 more asymptomatic who good chance are already immune to Covid and no longer contagious. We need these people as they would be already Herd Immune,,and will protect us.

    If you test Negative to the Covid virus, it means that you have no Immunity against the virus, & you will be Contagious & able to spread the virus to others in the first 2 weeks until you hopefully become positive with the Covid virus or its natural mutated virus variants.

    You see, after you have been exposed & then infected by the disease virus, over the next 2 weeks, your nervous system organizes & coordinates your Immune System to begin the Immune Process in which the immune system’s billions of plasma cells each produce 10,000 antibodies per second to deactivate all the disease virus in your body. That’s Confidence !

    Once you have deactivated all the Covid virus or its variants in your body, you no longer have any virus to spread to others, and therefore you are Non-Contagious.

    Having both Immunity and being Non-Contagious is what you want to be to be Healthy and protect others. Even giant Merck Pharmaceutical removed their 2 vaccines from the market & recommend instead that you get the actual virus & develop your own natural immunity & become non-Contagious.

    We want everyone to be positive whether tested or not, 99% will be asymptomatic.

    Masking, if it even works, and social distancing, retard natural immunity and retard being Non-Contagious. By preventing spread, it prevents exposure, infection, the immune process, your own immunity and your being non-contagious.

    Vaccines make you immune to the vaccine but not to the natural disease virus, nor does the vaccine prevent being contagious with the actual Covid disease virus.

      Spoken like a true idiot. Vodoo without legitimate repeatable proof i.e. scientific proof. Don’t get the shot, it will help thin out the gene pool.

      TGI, why post such a ridiculously WRONG and UNTRUE comment…??!!

      Having Covid once does NOT make you immune from getting it again. You CAN get Covid more than once.

      Being non-contagious for Covid takes longer than two weeks.

      Merck Pharmaceutical removed their vaccines because of they were not producing desirable/good enough results. Merck Pharmaceutical DOES NOT recommend you get the actual virus instead.

      Wearing masks has been proven to lower your chances on contracting the virus.
