My daughter, in the health care field, tested positive this week. We've got to keep her 4 kids (actually 2 of them already lived with us) for a couple of weeks. Since I've got a surgery scheduled for Tuesday morning, I figured I should get tested, too. There are several places doing it, but the only place open on Friday afternoon was at a local hospital. We got there and there was already a long line snaking through the parking lot to the testing area. The guard told us it would be about 4 hours! I had brought two of my granddaughters (daughter's girls) with me, hoping to get them tested as well. When we got there we were informed 18 and older, so it was just me. We sat in the car for 4 hours, running much of the time for the A/C. I'd turn it off once in a while, but we couldn't bear it for long. They had a few Port-o-potties staged throughout the lot, and it came close to me needing to use one, but I held out. The test itself took roughly 30 seconds. I guess the longest time was the insurance part.
I was proud of the 8-year old. She never whined or complained once! And her iPhone power lasted through most of the wait, fortunately! ;-)
I guess I'll hear something in the next few days. I hope!
Then, my oldest grandson came home from work early because he wasn't feeling well. He seldom gets sick! The old lady took him to that same hospital for his test a short while ago ...

I'm so sorry to hear that Mark. :( I hope your test is negative. That's much too close to home for comfort for you. :(

The economic crisis from Covid-19 has gotten this bad in Ohio.
No doubt the same is occurring throughout much of the US.


Pandemic, economic crisis to trigger wave of evictions, experts say
https://www.daytondailynews.com/ohi...tions-experts-say/E2L3D2JS4ZCT5CXQ7MLSVPGF3Q/

Too much to copy and paste everything important.

Nationally, the COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project estimates 25.8 million Americans are a risk for eviction by September 2020. In Ohio, 800,000 renters could be at risk for eviction and Ohio landlords will be owed $345 million in back rent by then, the project estimated.

A lack of stable housing impacts children and their education, reduces financial means to buy healthy food and medical care, and exposes families to dangerous materials in substandard housing,” according to the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies’ State of Poverty in Ohio report for 2020.

Electric and gas utilities also are making plans to resume disconnections and fees for non-payment.
