How do I count the days to figure out when I should take a COVID test, as it relates to travel? I left the airport around noon on Monday, which was my last contact with the public. I don't have any symptoms or specific known exposure, except that I was traveling.
The recommendation in my area is to take a COVID test 3-5 days after travel and self-quarantine for 7 days after travel or until a negative test. Obviously I can always safely err on the side of a longer quarantine, but how should I count days to get the most accurate test results? How about the fastest reasonably accurate results?
(Lest anyone fret, this was not a pleasure trip. It involved a house that could have been on Hoarders and I'm the next-of-kin.)
