Minnesota COVID testers 'confronted by a group of armed citizens'

As of last week, workers for the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are making house calls, conducting a statewide survey to track the spread of COVID-19.

From September 14 through September 30, the state/federal teams will "visit randomly selected households in 180 preselected sites around Minnesota," according to a health department announcement. One member of each of the houses on their list will be asked to complete a questionnaire, while all members will be offered a free test for coronavirus, or antibodies indicating they'd had the virus previously.

Both are voluntary, though state epidemiologist Dr. Ruth Lynfield encourages people to participate, as results will help health experts "refine our recommendations to best meet the needs of our Minnesota communities."

Locations for testing sites were determined by census blocks, and the methodology behind these randomized house drop-ins has been used in response to past public health crises like hurricanes, and the 2015-16 Zika outbreak, which ultimately infected fewer than 6,000 people in the entire United States mainland.

2. Guns, Guns, Guns

How the hell are we going to survive when ever nut has a gun. And to think all you need is a gun and your safe? It is not statistically the case for you or your family. Death and maiming is all you get, most likely to you or your cohorts. Pretty much a reverse reflective mentality of how testing/masking/distancing are viewed by the same-in contempt.
