One week after the governor’s announcement adding restrictions, here’s what’s new in the virus crisis:

NEED A TEST? For now, the official advice is, don’t get tested unless you have been exposed or are having symptoms. Test sites have been very busy. But that aside, we’ll note again that one of the citywide teseting sites is in the Southwest Athletic Complex parking lot (2801 SW Thistle), Mondays through Saturdays, 8:45 am-5:30 pm (closed this Thursday for Thanksgiving). Go here to make an appointment.
