I am following up on this comment at the request of Dewey, who is likely the "old timer" you are referring to, but also just to remind everyone that rumors, especially malicious ones, are about the least helpful thing that could be happening right now.

Yes, he was exposed. He immediately quarantined himself and his lovely wife the moment they knew. He then was tested with both the antigen quick test and the PCR test. The antigen quick test came back positive. He then posted on local social media concerning his exposure and letting everyone know. While they have followed protocol as far as masking, distance, etc. he wanted to be certain everyone knew.

He has remained in quarantine since. Today, we are all relieved to learn, he received the results of the PCR test and it was negative. His wife was also tested and again, negative. The quick test has questionable accuracy, the PCR test, not so much.

My point here is accusing someone falsely of endangering the health and lives of others in a reckless fashion is not exactly the most responsible thing to do in these trying times. I will add that our "outbreak" here has been minor compared to other places but we certainly are not immune.

And I sure hope you aren't insinuating I'm spreading "malicious rumors". There was nothing malicious about my comment, and I didn't even mention Dewey here, you did. Not sure why he needed to be mentioned at all or why a simple e-mail in private couldn't have been used to resolve any misunderstanding. But thanks again for helping to clarify the situation. I do appreciate it.
