I have cared for covid patients almost every day since may, including 3 months in a closed covid ICU which was PPE on-zone for the whole shift. we intubated everyone with our regular PPE/n95s on, had people on high flow, bipap, bagged people, etc. I have never had symptoms or been tested. I have been very careful in my personal life. me and my family haven’t had close contact with anyone other than a couple other family members who are on the same level of covid safety as we are, and they help us with child care. my kids aren’t in school/day care.
I personally think, if you are only taking care of tested, negative patients, AND you are being careful, you don’t need to test unless you get symptoms.
