Thumbs down Let's Get Real

Let's get real !! We are the largest community in the US with an average age of 67. We have approximately 132,000 residents and the largest concentration of veterans. Now can someone, anyone explain why we have no regular testing for the virus. The only one that
I know of is conducted by a private Medical faciliity. We have a bunch of elected officials visiting and bragging about our low percents of infected. Now how is that possible to know if you have not tested? No ones knows our numbers and it is an insult to us to pretend they do.

Please contact your county commissioners, the governor, your state senator and your state representative. Get the ball rolling!

Don't know but in the historic section which houses the oldest community of the Villages seem to be doing fine from what I can see. People going out with Golf Carts all over the place here, only thing short is not allowing them to do their normal activities safely…
Did it ever occurred to you that these elected officials just might be correct ‘bragging about our low percentage of infected elderly we here in the Villages’….

I found just one for The Villages .......... Premier Medical, and you need permission from a doctor and an appointment. . I would have thought our own hospital could have a drive through facility. I heard Gov. Cuomo say just yesterday that they have drive through testing everywhere across NY State, in fact they have more tests than people wanting tests!

Come on Gov. De Santis, bring us drive through testing. You cannot open a State without full testing.

I have a friend that has a pulmonary condition. She went for her regular checkup. They offered her testing for not only virus testing but also antibody testing if she wanted it. I have a feeling that people at risk have been offered the testing for a while. If you are not at risk, have been using precaution, and showing no symptoms, why would you need testing.

Testing non-symptomatic people is insane. They get tested, then stop at the store on the way home and get it. Now they get a negative result and in fact, are now spreading it all over. A revolving door of door of people thinking they are safe and just spreading it all over the place.

Wide open testing sites all around us. Hop in the car and you could probably be at a site within 30 minutes in any direction. "The Villages" owes us nothing but free golf, and lots of spring flowers. They certainly have no medical obligation.

Can't take a golf cart to Leesburg....... Also our hospital and the one in Leesburg) is the University of Florda's Hospital, doesn't belong to The Villages.

People should realize by now that a negative test means you were negative AT THE TIME OF THE TEST. A negative result does not mean you will always be negative. People at The White House are testing every day. Why? Because they can come in contact with the virus at any time after the negative test was done. Then one day.....bam. A positive result after being negative for weeks. It has already happened. Most folks who keep up with current events are aware of this.
