    hello all i have a question about a job already half done. Covered up my asbestos popcorn ceiling with drywall using a drywall hoist, 1/2 in ultralite and 2” drywall screws today. Tomorrow i plan to tape and mud. I’m concerned that i didn’t take enough precautions when drilling the screws through the popcorn, Into the joists. I wore a proper respirator, and safety glasses (not goggles). Blue taped painters plastic over every doorway and installed a zipper door that was kept closed the whole day, except the 7-8 times I had to go out for tools or supplies. If anyone has any experience in this project, or has any advice on whether or not I’ve just exposed me and my family to harmful asbestos dust please chime in. Thank you In advance.
