Due to COVID-19 and the economic setbacks many of us have encountered, we often see pictures of long lines of cars lined up at churches. In many cases, some stores seem to be nearly empty of shoppers, with good reason, depending on your location.
Some of us have even seen the images come to life in our cities and our neighborhoods. This morning my husband and I were coming back from Whataburger. As we were driving down the street, I took notice of a long line of cars in a church parking lot.
At first, I thought it was a toy drive. Yet, I didn’t see any toys, so then I thought it was perhaps a food line. I looked a little closer and noticed it was a COVID-19 testing line. In the past, our COVID-19 testing lines might have seen three or four cars at any given time. However, this morning there were lines of vehicles spreading out into the street behind the church.
It isn’t easy to get COVID-19 tested here in my city. You have to be in direct contact with someone who has COVID-19, and that doesn’t always get you tested. My husband’s office has been closed down at least nearly a dozen times, and his boss had it, but nobody needed to get tested. The clinics told the workers they weren’t in danger of getting COVID.
So, to see multiple cars at both 10 AM and 12 PM tells me we are about to see some crazy stuff regarding COVID-19 shortly. If you live here in America, please be careful. Order your groceries online if you can; if you have to go to the store, go in the morning. I cannot predict the future, but judging by the long line of cars from this morning, there are a lot of people getting tested.
