I assume you had it but have no antibodies?  I don't think you'll get it again.  Sorry.

How did you get to that assumption? I definitely did test positive for IgG antibodies, but I don't have a positive COVID-19 PCR test. I really would like to have one.

And I promise that I would self isolate once I get one, to satisfy the concern that:
Transmission is highest a day or two before symptoms appear, so they need "common decency" before they know they're infected.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why?

1. Why not?
2. So that I can go to EY without having to quarantine for 14 days.
3. Who knows? There might be other benefits down the road that I can't think of right now. So far having childcare issues did allow me to take CARES Act withdrawals even though I didn't have a positive PCR test, but who knows what opportunities might be available in the future. It just seems like a good arrow to have in my quiver.


And
4. I can get to post all about it on DDF.  ;)

Doesn't need to be a big piece and it's on the interior; shouldn't be too noticeable.

Exactly! As long as masks look or seem like they're providing some sort of required protection, it's OK.

Forgot to mention another good reason (though it's highly doubtful, as if I understand correctly reinfections are asymptomatic): During my bout with COVID-19 I managed to shed about 20lbs of bodyweight (and regained about 5 since). Dropping another 15lbs will get me even closer to my target weight.

How would you self isolate in 770?

Good question. It's unbelievable what these past few months have caused. Prior to this it would have been totally אפגעפרעגט that I would be in Crown Heights without being in 770 every day.

The bigger question is that you are seeking eager to do it.

I'm not sure where you get that reinfections are asymptomatic

I think you came home the same week I joined DDF, so I don't feel I can say welcome back, but at least hello!
Is the hearing loss complete?  How are you doing otherwise? 
There have been a few other reports of hearing loss, mostly in young people:

Interesting - one of the links you posted earlier today mentioned that someone was having clumsiness issues...

Right, both hearing and balance depend on the inner ear, so these might indicate the virus having an effect there. 

The last paragraph of the article I linked is encouraging: 
Whether the hearing dysfunction persists for an extended period is not known due to the scar[c]e research on this matter; only three small studies so far. If the trend also follows other viruses, then the Covid-19-related hearing loss should not be permanent. “Most cases of sudden hearing loss are viral, and most patients are treated with steroids,” New York otolaryngologists at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai explained. “Patients with mild degrees of hearing loss usually recover.”
