I wasn’t giving my opinion on the whole deal just that particular test site and the fact the FBI didn’t disclose what the issue was at that particular lab. Don’t read anymore into it than it was.Not saying this stuff doesn't happen but my husband's company relies on the tests they do on people up to 3x a week to protect their workforce. The fact of the matter is that testing, contact tracing and PPE absolutely DO work.
His workforce of about 300 is still under a dozen positives -- none of which have been between co-workers -- since August when they returned to work. This despite the fact that they're in Los Angeles which consistently ranks as one of the hotbed counties in the country and some of them work, by necessity, in very close proximity.
Pay attention to news stories BUT put them into context with the larger phenomena and don't be persuaded to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Testing, contact tracing and good hygiene protocols are still our very best assurance that we can contain infection.
