One of the things that has been most frustrating during our community conversation about COVID-19 has been that there are some people who refuse to believe that there is a real disease out there that is affecting thousands of their fellow Tucsonans. It’s almost as though they think that if they have a certain set of beliefs, that will protect them from being sick. We’ve seen plenty of tragic cases over these past few months that you’d think would show this isn’t the case, but people want to believe what they want, I guess.

To All Residents of City of Tucson and Pima County:
The challenge has come once again to respond to the Census questionnaire.
We’ve been doing COVID-19 testing at Udall Park for the last week or so. It’s relatively easy to sign up and get the testing done. I know this because I made an appointment and got tested earlier this week.
It takes five minutes to sign up. All you need to do is go to www.pima.gov/covid19testing and click on the Schedule My Test link for Udall, or call 800-369-3584 to schedule an appointment. The test itself was easy too, and there was nearly no waiting.
