    Thanks for providing your COVID updates on a daily basis especially for King County and West Seattle. I like that we get daily updates unlike the State of Washington website which does NOT provide death updates on weekends. Even during the week, their system is down due to “data reduction problems” about half of the time.

    I tried the Curative kiosk site at Garfield Community Center.  While I loved the process (supervised, self-administered mouth swab), it took over 4 days to get the result and it came back “indeterminate”!  So it was back to the SWAC testing site for that nasal swab.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
