Are the results reported? Will you need to deal with contract tracing or forced quarantine if you are positive?

If you test positive you must quarantine

If you test positive you can infect others so why would you want to avoid quarantine and endanger the lives of others?

Reported or not, one should...

I hope one will have the brains and responsibility to quarantine wether it is reported or not.

I absolutely would quarantine! I have been careful all along, wearing mask etc. And that’s why I have not had covid.
But I am concerned about the government getting involved

Why is that?

I previously got swabbed through Dr Schechter, was nice and easy and I got my results that same night! Would recommend to all, go get a test!

I won’t go and get tested so that I wont have to quarantine and lose a days pay. If the result is anonymous at least I would be careful not to come in contact with people and would wear a mask for the 14 days But now no test No mask. Don’t blame me if anyone gets the virus.
