  1. So it seems all of the rather few test appointment times have been filled.

    One test every 15 minutes seems rather inefficient, but what do I know.

    Will Watertown Bd. of Health offer additional testing opportunities in January or
    February?

    Disappointed I missed out on this opportunity, but I never expect much from
    any office in Town Hall.

    • Robert,

      It was not one test every 15 minutes. I believe it was a small handful of people scheduled every 15 minutes.

      I do agree that with the covid numbers increasing in town that it would help to have regular testing available for residents. I also would like to see any establishments that are not following the rules to be fined and to have property owners fined as well for gatherings that do not follow covid protocols.
