Thank you folks!

By the way I was also told Rapid Antigen Tests are highly unreliable, if it shows positivity then one is positive but in the negative case there's no certainty about the real status.
There are numerous stories in NZ of people taking multiple RATs during the day and coming back negative, then taking just one more and getting the dreaded positive line. So far it's been all negative so we're loosening ourselves up  :)

Only just found this Zac: I do hope that you and your wife are clear of the infection. I also hope that neither of you suffer long term effects either - from what I have learned they can be worse than the disease!

Thank you Stephen, the support from forumites has been a real morale-booster.

We're well clear of the government-indicated danger zone so we're no longer doing morning rapid antigen tests (each came back negative) but we have a supply of them to use the instant either of us should show any symptoms. My parents are also okay, thank goodness, so it seems we were lucky.
