During the COVID-19 Pandemic, my friends got COVID-19. I was very scared that I got COVID. So the hour after I was told that my friend had COVID. I went straight to the COVID testing center. While we were there, I was thinking about what would happen If I got COVID and how relieved I would be if I got the virus. 24 hours later, I got an email from the testing center. I was so nervous. I pressed the email and it said "Negative". I was so so so so so so so relived that I did not have COVID. Although I did not have COVID, I did stay home for a week just to be safe. I was also not aloud to see my friend for 4 weeks.
