    USELESS!!!…….WHY??………because unless people are being given there test results in 24-48 hrs…..”they are not”….it’s like 7-10 days…..GARBAGE. mix that with a 2-3 week delay in effects of this virus and what you have is a JOKE.

      Wait until next week, a large employer in Logan is forcing their employees to take the test. Take it or get fired.
      It was illegal just a few months ago. 200 positives next Tuesday or Wednesday.
