    There is no reason to be sorry. I respect your point of view. I should have added more context to my account. My wife and I have been isolated from all but a few family members. None of them has had covid, nor have they been in contact with anyone who has. I will also admit that it is selfish. I was looking out for my wife and me. But I will also stipulate that I was not putting others in danger given our history.

    I don't think your actions were selfish. We tested at the airport in Aruba on arrival. I had no idea we were being selfish by not testing beforehand.

    if my memory serves........you did not have good testing options in your area at the time, you had Thanksgiving interference, plus you had just come back from a business related trip a few days earlier. I do not think anyone thinks you selfish.

    Update- we can all do as we see fit not really looking to add tension we all have these days. We all make choices daily and we don't need to agree. Moving on. I do understand Mohairs point. Bon dia.
