The public should have intermediately been assured they could get testing at no cost and on demand. Targeting a rapid response to the at-risk population with low immune systems such as the elderly living in nursing homes or congregated living facilities, those sharing medical rides to and from a hospital or those standing in line at methadone clinics would have been, and remains, extremely helpful.
