A 3rd Cousin agreed to test (Family Finder), and received the Kit several months ago - in the midst of horrible weather. By the time it arrived, she was down with Bronchitis and a Sinus Infection, possibly also pneumonia. Latest I heard was, Sinus Infection had returned, she would test when all healthy.

Personally, while I was feeling real sick, I wouldn't be bothering to test. No problem with that. Just wondering -

1) would any of those - or any other illnesses - affect Test results??
2) Could testing while sick with bad cold, bronchitis, or any other illnesses endanger the folks in the Lab who process the test?

Or is waiting to be healthy not necessary as long as you feel up to doing what is involved in testing.
