This year has been a whirlwind of change, from having to wear masks to staying six feet apart to attending school virtually, which are all things I partake in. However, as luck would have it, I was close-contact traced by my school and the Shelby County Health Department. According to the CDC, this means I was within six feet for 15 minutes or more with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. As soon as my mom received the call, I was in my room quarantining from my entire family. Since my stepdad and my dad both go to work outside of their houses, I needed to receive a rapid test in order for them to go back to work in person. The closest and fastest one I could get was out in Arlington, Tennessee, about thirty minutes away from my house. Here is the timeline of my Rapid Testing experience at the RedMed in Arlington, Tennessee.
