Officials say Testing for the novel coronavirus will be reduced in Johnson County, which has reached the point where the virus is spreading by community transmission, state officials said Wednesday.

MANY residents have tried and failed to get testing. These are residents that are symptomatic not just those without symptoms and are UNABLE to get tested! Other communities are making it possible for an increase in testing capabilities but our county is SCALING back. This means for most of our community with mild to moderate symptoms we are just out of luck. Most will feel they have a simple cold or allergies and will continue to spread infection throughout the city.

Medical staff is UNABLE to get tested. These are the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, cna’s, aides, practitioners, emergency staff, environmental staff, security emt’s police etc.

This needs are important to continue to protect the city and prevent the spread to those at extreme risk. We can close schools, bars, gyms etc but can’t peovide a test for residents? Really?
