My COVID antibody test came back negative. it's the Lab Corps one without any titers or anything; you get a go/no go. So either I never had COVID or I had COVID but my body doesn't have the immune response that Lab Corps thinks implies immunity.

I was sure fuckin' sick tho.

Hollywood is currently trying to figure out how to shoot again. Bold & Beautiful did a day yesterday and then decided they needed a week off in order to rework their testing protocols. The recommendations, you see, call for daily nasopharyngeal swabs for everyone within six feet of a performer and thrice-weekly nasopharyngeal swabs for everyone who so much as listens to the same walkie channel. The recommendations, however, have fuckall to say about a camera department of 48 people sharing 7 cameras and 3 dolly tracks.

Everyone in Hollywood is basically splitting between oh holy shit I'll sign any waiver it's just the flu and I need the work and nothing we've seen indicates that there's any reasonable hope of this working.

I don't even know if I can make it down. Things are busy AF up here and based on the recommendations I've seen, I'll need to sign a sworn affidavit every morning attesting under penalty of dismissal and substantial legal action that I have no COVID symptoms. But I've got a lingering cough from that-which-apparently-wasn't-COVID. I wouldn't let me on set.
