CALGARY (660 NEWS) — A Calgary-area woman is frustrated as she waits to hear back about where and when she can be tested for coronavirus.
The woman from Airdrie got back from Mexico a few weeks ago and at first, wasn’t exhibiting symptoms, so she didn’t self-isolate.
It wasn’t until about five days later she developed a sore throat and chest congestion.
She reached out to Health Link in the middle of the night Sunday.
“I did get through to a nurse, and he asked if I’d done the self-assessment. I said yes, that’s why I was calling. I told him I had travelled abroad, and he said, okay, you need to be tested.”
She was told to expect a call within 24 hours to set up that test but hadn’t heard back after two days.
She said some of her co-workers have developed symptoms, and they’re struggling with whether they should self-isolate or go to work.
She’s not worried about her health, but about making someone else ill who has a weaker immune system.
