Any ideas as to how my husband and I didn't contract COVID when?

we lived with his daughter and they told her at the hospital that she had already had COVID.  She had it before there was any announcement of the pandemic.  We had no reason for any safety precautions.  How did we not get sick?  We lived together in a small condo.  My husband hugged his daughter often.  We ate meals together around a small table. My husband is in the high risk group.  He is over 70 and only has use of one quarter of one lung.

    Some might say, "don't look a gift horse in the mouth". But maybe you just got lucky or maybe your own tests came back with a false negative. My relative over 70 who had COVID experienced very few symptoms at all.

    How do you know you didn't?

    I'm quite serious.  Many people who contract COVID have zero symptoms, even those in otherwise high risk categories like your husband.

    Luck and she wasn't infectious at the time.

    When they say "already had", what they 

    really mean is that the antibodies show 

    up in her test. Not everyone that had it 

    is a transmitter. Also, there's such a 

    thing as a "false positive" where the 

    test results are actually in error. How 

    do you know and/or are you sure you 

    didn't contact it? Have you and hubby 

    been tested? Lastly, why is this posted 

    in "Marriage & Divorce"?

    It is possible that you are telling the truth.  It is more likely, in this day and age of fake news, that the tale is completely fictitious.  There is no reason to resort to the truth if a lie will sell some claim better.  You forgot to say that you deliberately did everything possible to catch it.
