I got it in the middle of December at a funeral. One person who was positive and said nothing gave it to a dozen others. I got the worst of it with double pneumonia. I was in bed for three weeks.

I sure wish/pray y'all feel better. My 10 day non Covid cold was awful enough. Glad I didn't give it to Tom. (Spare rooms help, guys/gals!)

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Had it February 2020. PA at the clinic said " we don't have a test kit yet, treated like flu, u should be better in a couple of days, if you get worse call us back." 5 days later I had pneumonia, they put me on antibiotics and steroids, and I rode that out for about a week before I felt well enough to go back to work.

Now the question is vaccine or no.... ;)

Pneumonia is what worries me. I seem to come down with some type of respiratory crud every year

Friend tested positive last April, she was not sick but her family was sick and all tested positive. She recently did get sick and again tested positive C19.

If you've had C19, supposed to wait 90 days to get vaccine. CDC recently said less than 20 globally reported re-infections after recovery. So chances of re-infection are slim. None of these vaccines have been approved by FDA, rather Emergency Use Authorization. Perhaps just semantics, but I'd prefer to pass on these beta versions.

You should get the antibodies test.

Not had it as far as I know. I always try to stay away from folks as much as possible. Shippers/receivers take my temp multiple times every week. I see no sense in getting the test without any symptoms at all. I’m healthy so I will give my spot in line for the vaccine to someone else. My personal feeling is this is just another virus and I treat it as such.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
