Testing is a waste of time unless you are hospitalized… Wash your hands and you know the rest of the drill drill….. if you are sick avoid the public.
Seriously, what good is testing? If you feel ill quarantine yourself… if you have no symptoms at all then you are not contagious.

What do they do with all the testing swabs when they are done…. a whole new problem to think about!

Testing is how they know how to separate the people who have the virus. Testing gives us eyes đź‘€ to see the dang virus. This salvia test is very good because the cost is less, and the results are much faster. You better thank your lucky stars we have smart people in charge.
The combination of testing, following the mandates is absolutely imperative to help isolate the pandemic. Duh!!!!

Testing is vital to keep COVID-19 out of long term care facilities.

Aunt Barbara,
YES! That is the way it should have always been even before “corona”.
Too many false positives with this test.

If thinking we have smart people in charge helps you sleep at night good for you, but that’s not reality. Central planning never has and never will work. Read a book or two.

In their effort to thwart a virus, what Newsom and his cadre of “scientific” advisors have introduced to California is basically the slow decay of civilization.

We do not have smart people in charge. We have weasel politicians hoping to score points and clueless but authoritarian medical professionals. Recall at first we were told not to use masks, now they might be mandatory nationally? Go to CDC website. Updated May 27 on “Cleaning and Disinfecting…” the CDC says they do not have any documented cases of someone getting covid-19 from surfaces! How can they not know that? And they also do not know if you can get the disease twice or if you are then immune if you get it and if so for how long. How can they not know that? And it is breathtakingly obvious that politicians have hijacked the information to spin it in ways to support their own agendas. No, we do not have smart people in charge.

I guess if you think there aren’t any smart people, including medical professionals, don’t go to the hospital if you get sick. About the masks – it’s because they didn’t have enough PPE at the beginning for the medical professionals so they didn’t want people buying up all the masks… Or maybe you think that was a lie… As far as them not knowing some of the details of the virus – it’s still new… Maybe just think to yourself – why have other countries got this under control and we don’t? https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/We-re-surging-again-Doctors-nurses-angry-as-15376836.php

A saliva test already exists. If someone with the bug coughs, sneezes, or yells without a mask on, you know that you will have the bug too.

No matter what you believe we must follow the mandated rules or we loose.
END OF STORY. The virus is out of control. You decide what the right thing to do is!
