Dear/Estimado(a)  JOHN TROIDL,                                                                                    

The result of your 11/23/2020 SARS COV-2 COVID19 RNA (COVID19) test was NEGATIVE. You do not currently have COVID-19 infection. Please continue to wear a mask when you leave your house, practice social distancing, and wash your hands frequently.

This letter may be presented to your employer, if needed.

Please contact your primary care provider if you have any questions or concerns. If you do not have a primary care provider and would like more information, please call us at 408-579-6183.



Folks,  I let out a yell "Yessssssssssssss!" when I got those results.  Because I am spending Thanksgiving with my elderly Mom (or better said, she is spending it with me in "Davis Mode") and I wanted to have some evidence that I am not carrying COVID19.  

That was my 9th consecutive NEGATIVE test result and I am grateful to the folks at the Gardner Community Health Center in San Jose when I was down there this week to visit with Mom and prepare our Thanksgiving visit.  

The test was free, no appointment required (walk up), multi-lingual, and the results came back in 48 hours.  I also got a free Santa Clara County Public Health face mask and hand-sanitizer.

Oh, man, I am so grateful this Thanksgiving!

Wonderful news, John!
Have a happy time together with your Mom. A day together will warm your hearts.
