On March 23, Mayor Kirkland sent out a press release saying he intended to request COVID-19 tests for Chester. Those aren’t my words. This is from his press release. https://wp.me/p2kkJO-75y
I don’t know if he still intends to request; has requested; had his request denied; or the tests are on the way. There hasn’t been an update on the city’s daily updates regarding his intent to request or another press release to update us. We’ve never heard from the Chester Bureau of Health. I don’t know where to turn for answers.
One thing is for certain. COVID-19 in Chester is on the rise.
- April 8 – 14 cases.
- April 9 – 28 cases.
- April 16 – 61 cases.
- April 17 – 71 cases.
