This is CRAP! A relative had all of the symptoms but when she had her virtual appt, the question asked were
" Have you traveled out of the Country?" she said "No" They asked "Have you been exposed to anyone who has been confirmed to have COVID-19?" Her aswer was "No, but I deal w/ around 5000 customers a day and any one of those customers could have had it" But because she answered No to both questions they told her she was not eligible for the test! She has been sick for over a week now!
