Not much shocks Americans anymore, but this shocked me.
According to the Daily Memphian, “The Shelby County Health Department, in partnership with the Shelby County Division of Community Services, is offering $125 Kroger gift cards during two COVID-19 walk-up testing events in October.”
That’s right. The government might as well say we need more Covid 19 cases, especially before the election, to blame Trump, get federal money and keep the schools closed.
If you noticed, we had a bump of 300 plus cases recorded yesterday. This seems to be just the right amount of time for these tests, which took place Saturday, to come back and be recorded.
Here are the details from the DM:
The gift cards can be used for home and food expenses for individuals who must remain home while awaiting test results.
The first is Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 3825 Neely Road.
The testing is free and available to anyone, age 13 and older, while testing supplies last. Spanish interpretation will be available.
Each person tested will be asked to provide an address and two telephone numbers so they can be contacted within two to three days with the test results.
Testing will be available to those who are asymptomatic and those who have symptoms. Free, reusable masks will also be provided to all who are tested.
No personal information will be shared with government agencies outside of the Shelby County Health Department and the Tennessee Department of Health, officials announced.

At Twitter, Back to NORMAL Yvonne (Burton) asks “how many cities are paying people $ to get tested like AShelbyTNHealth, then claiming few days later oh look we have spike in cases?”
