    I hope it was a false result, but my partner's mom just got a positive test from her Friday screening. We were hoping it was safe to have a non-distanced visit over the weekend, because she'd been fully vaccinated for months. Now we're self-isolating for two weeks...

    Fingers crossed for you.
    Generally I think false negatives are more common than false positives.

    That said, we don't know the likelihood of transmittance among vaccinated individuals. We do know that older people do not develop as robust antibodies as those under the age of 60.

    Yeah, she's been getting regularly tested since being vaccinated (her own parents and aunt are very frail, and she's been incredibly careful to check she had a clear result each time before going to see them). This is the first time she's had a positive test to my knowledge. So it's weird, but I guess not inexplicable with the variants changing the game. We're monitoring ourselves and the baby for symptoms as well as doing our own contact tracing, and I have a test scheduled for later this week. If it's negative my partner will get tested too, just to be 100% sure.

    The public health unit called us and confirmed that my partner's mom's test was a false positive. Huge relief. We're still being extra cautious, but we're all stuck under another province-wide stay-at-home order anyway for at least another month. Yay.

    Wow, that's great news. That's also the first I've heard of a false positive. Good to know!
