I don't know of anyone who doesn't want to get tested, regardless of how they are feeling. There has been so much information going around about how some people are immune, but are still carrying the virus. Other information is coming at us about how completely healthy people are contracting the virus. Now we are considering opening business and people are afraid. I don't blame them. I am particularly scared for our elderly population in long term care facilities.
