New COVID-19 BinaxNOW (Abbott) Rapid Antigen Test Done Today: NEGATIVE

New COVID-19 BinaxNOW (Abbott) Rapid Antigen Test Done Today: NEGATIVE
New (and FREE) COVID test kits arrived today, right on time.

I am home all day, on my computers.  No commute for me.  So the lack of contact with complete strangers keeps me quite safe.

However, I do live with folks who are out all day, and in contact with many.  So there is some exposure risk for me.

Moreover, I just got news that the owner of the house I live in has tested positive for COVID-19.  She got it before, and now has it AGAIN.

She works as a home-health aide. Our face-to-face encounters are extremely rare.  She pretty much lives where she works. 

But, to err on the safe side of things, I am back to being a total hygiene Nazi.  Spraying surfaces, door knobs, chairs, etc. with Lysol and/or 91% isopropyl alcohol.

The last time I did a COVID self test was February 28, 2022, 591 Days ago (and tested negative.)


Some interesting notes in the accompanying information pamphlet:

  • "...This test is not yet approved or cleared by the United States FDA..."

  • "...If you don't have symptoms, a second test should be taken at least 24 hours (and no more than 48 hours) between tests..."


91% isopropyl alcohol.
