Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: SENIOR LIVING

, , Leave a comment

When Gov. Ron DeSantis opened up the state on May 29, he did so with virtually no controls in place and cases soared. This week, the governor opened up senior-living facilities, again with minimal restrictions. That decision will not bode well. We still have no treatment and no vaccine. But we now have rapid testing with 15 minute on-site results. The problem is that senior-living communities can’t acquire them, but the state can. Let the state’s task force distribute testing equipment now with unambiguous state-mandated protocols: seniors will be far safer and their loved ones can come calling. Sentiment – yes! But science first.
