Hurt Feelings

I am going to rent out my guest room to a neighbor for a couple days so her room-mate can have a place to stay while that neighbor's sister is visiting. I've been readying my apartment and cleaning in anticipation for this person's brief stay. This afternoon a mutual friend of ours whom I visited and had lunch with on August 24th called and shared with me that he had been exposed to Covid from his housekeeper. That said I may have had Covid exposure from him. Wanting to be totally transparent and caring for the health of my would be house guest I called my neighbor a few hours ago only to be chewed out by her. She acted as if I was at fault over the whole matter. Then denied I'd had exposure by saying the bad flu I got and they got in early 2020 was Covid. It was not since none of us were in the hospital over it. Right now I am feeling hurt for being yelled at. So what would you do in such a situation besides getting tested for breakthrough Covid?

You are in the right. She is wrong. She sounds like an ungrateful person and I would limit my contact with her. I was recently hurt by someone too. I was in the hospital and I was gonna have surgery the next day. I had trouble sleeping the night before the surgery. That night there was bad reception is my room. But I sent out a message that I did not even think would go out. to an old friend telling her I was in the hospital and having surgery the next day. The message ended up getting to her at 5am. She chewed my out for waking her up and said she was having an ant problem at her house and was angry that I woke her up at 5am. So, that was very hurtful. She did not even seem to care about me. I feel different about her now. I think that was very mean of her. Reply

You did the right thing, she should have been thanking you for telling her. I wouldn't speak to her again unless she calls and gives you a sincere apology. Reply

You did the right thing. You were being careful and trying to protect your neighbor, and you were already doing her a big favor by letting her stay in your home. She should be more grateful.\
You should probably stay isolated until you hear if your friend you had lunch with finds out his Covid test results. If he tests positive you should get tested. It's possible your earlier "flu" was Covid, but not having to be hospitalized doesn't mean anything; I know a number of people who've had Covid and none were hospitalized. You could get tested to see if you have Covid antibodies, but if you've been vaccinated, that test may not be valid.

Your neighbor is upset because she suddenly has to make other plans and is lashing out at you, not because you are at fault, but because she is upset. It's kind of like someone coming home from a bad day with the boss at work and kicking the dog. You did everything right and should not feel bad for the way she reacted. If I were you and you still feel fine,I would not get tested unless your friend whom you had lunch with tells you that he tests positive for Covid. If that happens, then I would go for a test, too.
We had a similar situation happen. We allowed a partially vaccinated relative to come for dinner since she was in town for a conference. A couple of days later, she was contacted that someone she had been in close contact with at the conference had Covid. She was highly upset primarily because she knew we had been doing everything possible to prevent getting Covid and she may have exposed us. She went the next morning and was tested for Covid so she could let us know. Thankfully she tested negative. Had she tested positive, we would have gotten tested, too, even though we are fully vaccinated. Breakthrough infections do happen.
