I don’t understand who gave the confidence to the politicians bragging how prepared their districts/cities/states are prepared for COVID.

Update: after an afternoon of refreshing the CVS website, I finally got a slot @6pm tomorrow 🥲 Now my colleagues will know whether I have COVID while they are on their flights home. Better than never

Nope the small towns usually do t have tents or vans and stuff, and places like CVS and Walgreens surely dont have enough capacity

In Texas, I just book an appointment at CVS. I’m in France now, and there are literally testing tents all over the place.

Oh and yeah, I was at a holiday celebration event earlier this week. Guess what, my colleagues also won’t know if I have COVID until I manage to find a testing appointment perhaps after Christmas, or even next year I just called 211 and they told me that my best bet is to pay $125+tax at a private company, cuz all other free options won’t be available in the near future 🙃

And fellow NJ residents, pls help. I’d like to get tested around this big region - pls tell me if you know any testing location: Morristown - Livingston - Oranges - Union - Springfield - Summit

Guidehouse1 - I wish I can live in the capital PwC1 - thanks! I decided not to bet on the inventory Mck1 - as expected … D1 - I’ve heard that the tents are still there and are being repurposed
