I said, “I don’t think I’m going to be able to go for dinner’, and she said, “why don’t you have a rapid test”, because she had been a little bit crook for a couple of days.

‘Then it came up positive and I rang Pangy and rang our work, Nova, and said I came up positive pretty quick, I think we probably need to put something in place where everyone get tested. So I did the right thing.’
