Please help me
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Is there a local clinic that I can go to. I'm in Dublin
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Can I get a certificate of non contagious to allow me to return home

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.

I understand your concern about COVID.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with explanations & suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well, from your symptom analysis and correlation with the information that I have gathered from you, A patient is considered contagious the first 10 days from symptom onset or 10 days from the first positive covid test. So, if you tested positive on April 30ths then you are not considered anymore contagious after the 10th of May.

Please contact the nearby doctor and ask for further testing and relieve you from the isolation as you don't have any symptoms now.
