Good news! The Sunday night and Monday morning PCR tests both came back negative! That makes me confident enough that I will continue to get negative results for when I need the PCR test for the flight.
However, the antigen test this morning still is positive. The covid officer says that one might continue to give positive results for a week or longer.
So that means I need to use the PCR test result to get the flight home. The trouble is it takes 12-24 hours to get those results back and I need a test from the previous day in order to get on the flight. If I drop the test off before 9am it *usually* comes back around 9-10pm the same day, so that essentially means I'll book the flight and then not know if I'll be actually able to get on it until the night before.
I'm currently planning on coming back on Thursday. I also still don't feel *great* right now, so I'm hoping an extra couple days will leave some room for improvement too.
But in other good news, my sense of smell has come back this evening and I can taste food again!
Bad news, the rapid antigen test is still positive. But I am apparently still allowed to go outside because I have the negative PCR test and finished the quarantine period.
Looks like the theory is it's most contagious from a few days before symptoms develop to a few days after, so I'm significantly less contagious now. Plus of course still masking. Anyway, will probably spend the rest of the day inside the hotel room anyway.
So I guess that means it's too early to book a flight out of here still. I need a negative test to get the boarding pass for the flight, and the PCR tests take ~12-24 hours to come back, so it will have to be an antigen test. At least now I can go outside to do the rapid antigen test every day now.
