...still, here's the problem...we only accidentally (let's check them all) found a population that was 38% (or whatever) positive and yet totally asymptomatic, because the symptomatic ones were already taken care of. This is the South End/homeless testing referred to earlier in a post by AG.
Until we get an easy fingerstick or something like that, we're going to be missing a significant part of the positive population.

There was a very deliberate effort to test everybody coming into the Pine Street Inn.

And yes, while we may still be falling short on testing, we're seeing a lot more than even just a couple of weeks ago.

'So this was stunning to us. We were not expecting that. The shelter was certainly not expecting that ...'

Ya, it was an eye-opener.

'Federal Transportation Authority?'

NSA. No Such Agency.

'From The Article' cited is what I meant. But you knew that. I hope.

The article says no insurance required, it doesnt say no money required. Saying no insurance required doesnt mean they wont harass people for money some time down the road. And if a person tests positive will they provide treatment at no cost and no insurance

As in you won't have to pay for it.

Covid treatment is also free in Massachusetts if you have insurance or are on MassHealth. You're not? You can sign up until April 25 at the Health Connector.
