Yeah, one town in Colorado has drive-through testing---for people who have the time to drive to Colorado. And how good is the online test?

Hopefully, very accurate. And hopefully free tests or at least affordable tests will be widely available very soon. please list all the places you can go to get free tests.

Not looking for a fight ... but I posted this shortly after a conversation with a lady who has symptoms and could not afford the test, which was also not covered by her insurance .... and since she is someone I know, i give her word a lot of weight ... and since she is coping with a potentially fatal infection, i figure she isn't joking. Who knows?
If the government really cared about protecting their people they wouldn't be charging $3000 to do a test. With so many people under lockdowns and unable to work, and loosing their jobs, how are they supposed to pay ??...the government has failed its people. Not surprising at all.
