I took my daughter for covid-19 test and all went smoothly. She was tested positive so ten days later we went back to be seen and to ask the doctor to write a note for my daughter to return to school, which is a requirement. To my surprise, both the front desk staff and the nurse insisted that no such thing can be issued unless a retest is done. But we all know that "positive" can stay with someone for weeks and months, way beyond the contagious stage, and that is why schools do not ask for a "negative" test result, they ask for "wellness" check by a doctor. Sure enough, I was right. The good doctor knew exactly what that was and issued a standard letter for my daughter. My question is: how could the staff and nurse not in the loop for such a standard process?
