“My family has taken refuge in our home and we have continued to do so for the past two weeks as directed by our doctor. Just a few days ago we re-tested and now thankfully it’s negative,” She wrote.

“It’s an absolute travesty and failure that our government is not getting more people tested,” she continued.” This disease is serious and real. People need to know that this disease affects young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make the tests free and more widely available to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities.”
