    Nor here. Feeling fine myself except for waking at 6am with a very strange cough.
    Soon went after drinking water though.
    Just had a 2 hour walk incase I get put under house arrest when results finally arrive.
    Hope you are ok @tek-monkey . Son feels extremely tired with his , so definitely one of the symptoms.

    Thanks :)

    I'm OK thanks, got at least 2 weeks food in the freezer and can send for daily stuff :)

    I actually just had a run for the same reason! Avoided anywhere with humans just in case, but feel much better for it and pace wasn't terrible. Maybe it's lack of alcohol :D

    I decided to give up alcohol for a while to get fitter for if I do catch the virus. Over 6 weeks booze free now, over 2 stone lighter than I was at start of September and feeling much better for it (Apart from millions of blisters from pounding the chase and pavements for hours ).

    I keep thinking of what Boris said once on one of his press conferences , about when he caught Covid-19 ...... "My underlying health condition was being fat"

    Thats really impressive, well done!
    I have the odd drink, but one bottle a night at most. I've actually put on weight through exercise, but it's good weight so OK!

    Perhaps it's also because you're getting your oats regularly..?

    The on and off closure of pubs has effectively meant that I gave up alcohol eight months ago.
    It has made no difference whatsoever to my physical health and I'm the 12 stone that I've always been.

    I gave up alcohol yesterday. No effect on my weight whatsoever, so might as well have a drink again tonight.

    Let me know if you need anything picking up apart from the essential Izaak Walton Brewhouse cider delivery which I shall take as a given :)

    I'll be doing essential beer shopping next week so let me know if you want any of those fruit ciders.

    I’ve been booze free since the middle of August, I feel better for it, sleeping better too.

    Well actually, to be truthful, we went to some friends in Surrey a month ago and the champagne came out, I’d never turn down champagne so I had some.
    Felt dreadful the next morning.

    So one night of drinking in 14 weeks.
    We’ve been out socially several times, especially in the summer and I just had soft drinks, all was good and I didn’t think I was missing out.
    I’m not saying never again though, if I want one I’ll have one and that will probably be at Christmas.

    Although I feel much better, my weight is exactly the same, but although I wouldn’t mind losing half a stone, I’m not stressing over it.

    I didn't give up alcohol last night, like you this has had no effect on my weight, so I won't be giving up alcohol again tonight. Already on my fourth bottle of Westons Vintage, as you can probably tell.

    Well , 3 days since the test and no results received yet. :( The person taking mine said should hear within 24 hours .Hubby reckons his 'test taker' didn't say anything to him about results. Feels a waste of time going. Not bothering going to any more asking for people without symptoms.

    Will just book a test in future if I feel ill.

    Nowt here either, they said 48 hours to me.

    EDIT: The email says

    "All negative test results will be sent to the email address or mobile number you have provided."

    Mind you it also has 2 spelling mistakes and the wrong date.
