Examples of sheltered in a Sentence

  1. John Whyte:

    The antigen test commonly known as the rapid diagnostic test after which results are provided in minutes to an hour detects specific proteins on the viruss surface. Its usually highly accurate, but it ismore likely to miss an active infection compared to the molecular test, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Meanwhile, the molecular test, also known as the RT-PCR test, nucleic acid amplification test, or a NAAT or diagnostic test, detects the viruss genetic material and, depending ondemand in the lab, typically takes a day or up to a week for results. This test is highly accurate and usually does not need to be repeated. Those who havesymptoms but have a negative rapid antigen test may require a molecular test to see there isindeed an active infection, according tothe FDA. As it stands now, I think we trade off accuracy for speed, i think we will continue to improve these tests but thats also why being attuned to symptoms and practicing the public health strategies is the way to go for now. Ultimately, we need to do more surveillance testing to really see whats happening in the community. Dr. William Schaffner, a medical professor at Vanderbilt University and medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, told Fox News that testing could play a role in certain situations, using a family with young children visiting grandparents as a key example. Testing could have a role in this, though not so much for grandma and grandpa who have [ likely ] been sheltered at home, he said. But William Schaffner, like John Whyte, expressed concerns over testing accuracy and providing a false sense of security to those who receive the test. I think you have to inquire on the front end how long it takes for the results to come back, it tells you what your status is on that day.

  2. Andreas Simic:

    Love is the illusive elixir we all seek and fewer seem to find. Those that are blessed with it ultimately know that it has been uncovered and that it must be sheltered and nurtured. Andreas Simic

  3. Rabindranath Tagore:

    Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it.

  4. Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson:

    This is something that I cherish. Once in a friend's home I came across this blessing, and took it down in shorthand ... it says something I like to live with Oh Thou, who dwellest in so many homes, possess Thyself of this. Bless the life that is sheltered here. Grant that trust and peace and comfort abide within, and that love and life and usefulness may go out from this home forever.

  5. Drew Barrymore:

    I didnt deserve to go there, my mom and dad were just very strict and sheltered when I lived in LA. I wasnt allowed to go on dates, couldnt wear makeup, couldnt go to a school dance. They just didnt want me to grow up. Then I moved to New York and thats when my life changed.
