I recently spoke with two attorneys from Charlottesville, Virginia. They wanted to get tested for active coronaplague in preparation for a family reunion that included some older relatives. One is employed by the state and therefore both have absolutely top-of-the-line health insurance.
“Most of the places we called said that we couldn’t get a test unless we had symptoms,” said the wife. “We did finally find a place, but they said that the results wouldn’t be available for 8 days.”
Maybe things are better in Maskachusetts? Cambridge was offering free testing for residents and, by July 8, the entire month of July had been booked (i.e., the wait to get tested and then receive a result would be at least 25 days or so).
