Despite being double jabbed I tested positive for Covid this week, fortunately my symptoms are no worse than a heavy cold, so far. I’m self isolating and completed the NHS Tracing form as requested - listing where I’d been and who I’d come into contact with in the days before I started feeling rough.
What is most surprising, and perhaps worrying, is that it seems 90% likely that I caught this virus outdoors, most likely on a football pitch ( I referee several grassroots games per week) as I hadn’t been to any shops, pubs, other indoor venues during the days beforehand. I live alone and hadn’t met up with anyone else during this period.
Perhaps a lesson for us all, even those who are vaccinated: it’s possible to get this virus in outdoor settings when you’re least expecting it. Thank heavens the vaccinations have most likely prevented me from getting seriously ill.
