    It doesn't matter how tired she is. As long as there are beds we don't have to worry about patients in the hospital.

    As of today every household can order free covid test kits, I believe it's 4 per house hold and if insurance bills you, you can recoup the cost according to the news this morning.

    The site says not until the 19th to be able to order the test kits.

    You can buy them though today and get reimbursed for the cost...I'm sure availability varies from state to state....we'll order them next Wednesday as there's no pressing need but if someone think's they are positive or has been exposed, they can get them today where available.

    As I understand it, insurance has to pay for 8 per month per person. That site only lets you order 4 per household per order. At least, that's how I understand it.

    they are limiting to 4 to keep people from hoarding them I read or from reselling them at a profit.

    None of your links verified “full” hospitals. I was under the impression that was the claim you were trying to defend. You’ve still yet to do so. I don’t expect you to go search out any more stories that loosely attempt to prove your point with claims of “nearing capacity” or whatever. It’s just fear mongering at this point. We’re at double the ‘cases’ of last year with a mere fraction of the deaths and hospitalizations.

    Jesus Christ. How loudly do nurses and doctors have to beg and plead before people stop spreading this bullshit?

    There are stupid people listening to this horseshit you're spreading around.
