Laboratories are struggling to keep up with the nationwide demand for testing. Therefore, it is taking longer for test results to come back.  Laboratories are prioritizing tests for hospitalized patients, symptomatic healthcare workers and emergency responders, symptomatic patients who are medically fragile and live in congregate housing such as nursing homes, and symptomatic high-risk unstable patients whose care would be altered by a diagnosis of COVID-19.

    It’s obvious that the Health Dept. is testing their family & friends first, then local politicians, then those with means, etc. Everyone else is sent to the back of the line. Typical of local favoritism, corruption.
