Last week marked a new beginning for Prince William County: We began offering free COVID-19 testing to residents. Testing sites are located in the Neabsco and Gainesville Magisterial districts and open to all residents who would like to be tested.

I don't trust a bit of it, my blood is CMV negative, how accurate is this testing so as not to give a false positive?

Due to the sensitivity of the PCR tests and the difficulty in getting a good sample, false negatives are much more likely.

While I applaud increased testing sites for persons with symptoms, I question the decision to allow nonsymptomatic patients. You can receive a negative result in a few days, feel invincible and go to a grocery store and catch it on Day 4. Unless a person has symptoms, they can call their MD and get a referral but otherwise, we are wasting money. Signed RN, BSN
