    I would call others within Kentucky, learning whether such were required, and then Nashville as well as elsewhere.

    You want to hear what’s crazy about this and keep in mind I don’t talk politics much, my wife has a friend who was rejected for getting a Covid test. They asked her a bunch of questions then said, “A Covid test isn’t warranted at this time. You haven’t been at risk.” I’m like, “WTF! Has she been living in a bubble? We can require them for certain procedures but if a person is just trying to be cautious and get tested they don’t have that option?” I don’t know all the details but this honestly happened about two weeks ago. Head scratcher for sure.

    My 6 yr old boy had his tonsils removed couple weeks ago. He had to have one done 4 days prior. I hated it for him. They run that swab deep. Had to hold him when they go to the nose. Good thing you weren’t doing this during the TP run. Good luck.

    I will sit on my hands to prevent an accidental swing. Dammit i hate the deep swab, almost as bad as the cameras jammed up and down .

    I had to get one 3 days prior to surgery. My son was scheduled to get one tomorrow, 5 days prior. But that got changed to Monday as John Hopkins does their own lab work and has quick turn around

    I bet the chances of testing positive are slim to none when your fixing to spend thousands. :rolleyes:

    Like to see a study done that showed the percent of people showing positive vs negative from random test done vs test for hospital procedures. Be interesting

    It would. And I got a feeling how it would turn out but we will never know.
