OR it could be a COVID policy ........... or a better idea, make a deal with the delivery guy, open your windows wide, and ask him to throw the parcels at ya, I mean how hard can it be you are only on the 3rd floor (I hope you can catch)
Bad customer service is everywhere, next time watch your delivery guy closely, he could be a silent killer in the making

Seems like the Chinese government have found a very good excuse for total control of it's population, Sigh!.
Just take a look at Austria and see what happens when a government totally loses control over the situation.
What about Australia , all lockdown records are broken here , Melbourne hold world record as place most in lockdown ?
And Australians are proud saying ..it is not like in China , we choose to be in lockdown , this is democracy , this is how it must be

A man is all alone in his office printing stuff suddenly a copy comes out with a black circle on it he puts his hand on it his hand goes through it he discoverers that anything can go through that black hole on a piece of paper,next when he goes to the bank he enters the locker room and sticks the paper on a locker and removes bundles of money he decides to get into the locker through the black hole he gets in but the paper falls down on the floor and he gets stuck in the locker
DUST covers such short movies in different topics including Science Fiction how an US astronaut takes the first flight in a spacecraft that travels at the speed of light but when he is 100's of light years away NASA looses contact with him because his spacecraft encounters problems and gets stuck in space as he nears death aliens rescue him and take him home where his family is waiting hoping he will return his family watches as he walks out of the alien ship in his backyard in safety the movie is only 15 min long but a whole story is created

Already taken a second test, And we'll see if that is also a negative. But yes!!, You could walk into the test center without covid and leave the exit with Covid (it's kind of a gamble).
This is why they are issuing at home rapid testing. People who go to test centres should be symptomatic in the first place, not just og there just for the fun of it - yeah it would be bad going in getting tested whilst negative, and exiting positive, yet you get a negative result - in home rapid testing is the best way to avoid that and also to artificially reduce number o reported daily cases too - it's better for politicians who won't have to report all those cases daily - because how many people do you believe will be honest to go get their PCR after a positive rapid test in home, so many new cases will go unreported - problem solved, politicians can then brag about how much cases have dropped and everything is under control
But if the second test also turns out negative and i don't have any symptoms, We'll what can i do about it then?.
There is nothing you CAN do, well there is but more on that later. First, the whole testing thing is a smokescreen, testing means you were not positive AT THE TIME of the test, but with this super variant and it being 70 million times more transmissible, statistically EVERYONE will get it, just like everyone can get the common cold, so now for the bad news part, if Omicron is as bad as they say it is (and so far it is), it means eventually the hard reality, you may get it at some point in time, everyone will, most of which will be asymptomatic or mild symptoms - this is good and bad news, good news because you get natural immunity from this variant, until the next variant in 2022 called Sigma, the ABD news is that there will always be a % of the volume of cases who will get severely ill or die - they said it, Omicron is bad, eventually an entire population can get it, now what can you do about it, if you fancy building a nice bunker below desert sands, then yes you can pretty much guarantee you won't be the ones to get COVID. What will end up happening is that variants will become weaker and weaker BUT highly contagious - so we will end up with a scenario where COVID becomes endemic, and now we have 3 things to worry about, the common cold, the common COVID and the common Flu but the virus becoming weaker and endemic might be the best case scenario so far, it's better than living with more variants of concern - is it a coincidence that this bloody variant has 50 mutations and is so transmissible ? it looks to me like the virus is aiming at infecting everyone rather than killing eveyrone, you know how our body is 70% water ? Well one day it will be 35% water 35% COVID, we'll all get exposed to COVID at some point, hopefully no worse than a wee cold OR worse case scenario Omicron could be the precursor to the great plague of end times and we will soon become zombies. I hope you have learned the choreography in Thriller
between 10.000 and 12.000 infections daily at the moment, The great Danish healthcare systems turned out to be an outright lie
There's much worse - look at the US, they could be looking at 500k-600k new cases daily once this thing takes off,
in fact projections suggest 1 million new cases daily eventually.
As far as health system, you haven't been to Canada - in some provinces it is really bad, call an ambo and wait 30 minutes to an hour whilst you croak from a heart attack. Go to the emergency for something urgent, prepare to wait 80 hours MINIMUM on a chair in some waiting room, dying of pain, and if you are lucky they will put you in a gurney and leave you there 24h-48h in some obscure hallway somewhere in the basement or next to the morgue, the system is overwhelmed - we have a JOKE of a PM here who thinks of his popularity before the safety of Canadians, that muppet who has decided it was a good idea to keep borders open and allow for international travel - well it will not be surprising to see 10k-50k daily cases in Canada if not more - where Ontario and Quebec are the 2 hot spots, and 2 worst provinces concerning COVID cases.
Maybe Omicron will be short laved - i mean sure, logically, the virus will eventually run out of people to infect, until of course, a new variant comes out, remember my words, print this post and enlarge to a poster size, paste it on your ceiling, the next variant will be called Sigma - and once that happen I will be sure to brag about it like I correctly predicted a new super variant before end of year
Some parts of Canada are now back into full lock down and they are not excluding curfews, was about bloody time, the only thing they missed on is having military and tanks on our streets, we need order around here, if people don't wanna follow guidelines, it's time to take hard measures to stop this - otherwise we'll be spending another year worrying about this damn virus.

3 times a charm innit ? Congrats on your negative test, but be careful, tests can be false negatives - some people are asymptomatic - technically if you test prior to shedding virus, you would test negative - which means people could get infected, do random testing and turn out negative - but a few days later the virus sheds, that's why people who get tested whilst having symptoms are more likely to get positive.
Actually i am very surprised that i did not contract it after spending 4 days with my girlfriend who got tested positive 3 days ago, You know!! Cuddling, Hugging, Hrrmmm sexual intercourse and that kind of stuff
Bloody hell I'm surprised too You must have super immunity. If she had Omicron 100% you would have gotten it, no doubt about that, it's extremely transmissible. She likely either has the original strain or Delta, though Delta is already more transmissible.
Testing before going to a party is risky - you could in theory test negative, BUT somehow you get infected in between - Omicron is extremely contagious - unlike original strain, when an infected person breathes they release so much more virus, it replicates 70 times faster, so being in contact with a person guarantees you will get it, be careful about that.
P.S. This new variant is what will wipe humanity off this earth - it's not an Asteroid, so you don't have to worry about anything hitting the earth anytime soon - what matters is that yourself and all parties in the same room have had their 3rd dose - according to experts, EVERYONE will get infected with Omicron, just like the cold, of course because of the sheer volume, there will be a % of that that will die or get severe complications and hospitalisations even fully vaccinated and boosted - it is the harsh reality - there is no escaping Omicron, only that it hurts to see loved ones, friends, etc, get it - get ready for 2022, Sigma variant is around the corner, this one will be peculiar - it will make you talk in reverse permanently - But no joke, there WILL be a Sigma variant in 2022.
Stay safe and have a good one - we can all stop this bloody nonsense by all wearing 6 layers of masks, spectacles (sealed from all sides) and preferably hazmat suits - we can all enjoy company with full on protection, there is a sign on me door that states "Please put on your hazmat suits before entering" -
