Default Gov Desantis coming to TV tomorrow re Covid-19 TV Test Site

Governor: ‘Golf cart’ drive-thru coronavirus test site at The Villages possible
‘They’re not going to be driving their automobiles but their golf carts,’ Gov. Ron DeSantis says


DeSanitis spoke about opening a pop-up COVID-19 testing site in the retirement community of The Villages, because of the demographic. According to the Centers for Disease Control Prevention, those over 65 and people with pre-existing health conditions are most at risk for the virus. However, younger populations can still become critically ill as well, according to a CDC report released this week.

“Only at The Villages they’re not going to be driving their automobiles but their golf carts,” the governor quipped.

Ha! Certainly for publicity - not known where the 'test site' or his visit will be, perhaps it may not be public, and just to County/TV officials. The Sun will prob publish details.

Coming here to test The Villagers-why? There are not enough tests for people who are genuinely sick. This will be like the grocery store "grab all the food before anyone else" panic.
Get tested today-find out you don't have it, then in the next few days go play golf with someone who does and get the virus then. No sense to it.
Just a governor PR stunt.

So how would that be any different from any of the other test sites that are drive through in the Country? Do you think if they test negative they won't meet someone that may have it. Why does this site attract so many negative folks.

This is why I believe people like Gracie have quit posting. I only comment on threads about the internet, cars, homes, anything but the virus, because everytime I click on one, this is what you read. One poster makes a statement about something in the news, and 7 others ask who, what, where, when, why, it's for a stunt, nothing positive, only negative thoughts and comments. I think most of you virus posters have become Debbie Downie. Go read the thread about what are people watching on TV without sports, you might learn something.

YEP...you nailed it.

Save the limited number of tests for those who are currently showing some type of actual symptoms...not just to cater to potential voters.

When there are plenty of tests to go around, then set it up so anyone feeling like it...can go get one.

I think the motive behind this visit is as plain as the nose on your face. The ball was dropped a long time ago by the higher ups, and now it's all about cleaning that up. And we shouldn't comment on that?

And by the way, Gracie had plenty to say about Ebola and what the government was not doing enough about it. She was very, very concerned. Maybe she feels less concerned, I don't know. But she's never been one to not join a fight. I disagree that the current level of comment is having an effect.

I highly doubt the intent here is just to do an Oprah "here's a test for you, here's a test for you, everyone gets a test!" Only those who are told to get one by a doctor would be eligible. It's NOT a McTestald's that they want to open just a "Villages way" to get one if you are told to do so. That being said he ought to head to the beaches instead and swipe away the kiddies by closing the beach instead of coming here. Maybe he also wants to sell refrigerators and stoves to the new construction area.
