We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for coming out and to welcome you back to the default world where reality has hit most of us like a wet fish across the face. (Pro Tip: Salsa is your friend and pho ain’t bad either.)
This is a loving reminder that you were a part of a very big event with a lot of incredible people you haven’t been exposed to in a medical, and possibly even biblical way in a long while. As such, getting tested for COVID is likely a good idea so you don’t go bringing it home and/or spreading it around to your other loved ones.
The country, our state, and all nearby counties are seeing an increase in community spread and so it should come as no surprise that a very small number of our volunteers have already tested positive for that nasty bug upon their return.
Here’s what we suggest:
- Testing is sexy. Do it right meow even if you feel ok. A home test is fine. Why not know for sure?
- Test again in 2-5 days as that bugger likes to sometimes take a minute to show its face. Then, if you start to experience any weird symptoms, test again. As a reminder, we have Load Out for the land coming up, so if you’re volunteering it’s a super good idea to test before you go.

That’s it! Painless, right? Look, we’re not your mom or anything, but we want to be sure you’re safe and happy and we get to see your face again come next Flipside. A quick swab up your nose and 15 minutes or so of questioning your life choices seem like a fair trade for that, right? Right. More to come soon
AAR, AFs, Leads, Volunteers, and everyone who helps make it go!
