Gov. McMaster Asks Residents to Get Covid-19 “Test Before Turkey”

During his coronavirus briefing yesterday, Governor McMaster urged residents to get Covid tested before Thanksgiving. In order to keep people safe, plenty of locations will be made available to the public in order to allow for such widespread testing. McMaster will also issue an executive order providing every public school district with regular testing kits for students, teachers and staff. Parents or guardians of students will have to sign a consent form for this. While the governor said they’re doing everything they can to reduce spread, it will not include shutting down the state again. The goal is to have the test kits at schools the week after Thanksgiving.
