I have great news!
My dad tested NEGATIVE for the virus! It's such a relief. He still has a bit of a sore throat, but he says he's starting to feel better. It could be severe allergies or something like that.
He will be sent to a throat specialist to find out (and thank God for free Canadian healthcare) but he's doing much better now. Getting tested for the virus was easy, free, and fast. We found out the next day of getting the test that he didn't have the virus.
Thank you for all the well wishes! I hope everyone out there stays safe and healthy during these perilous times.
