As you know Mayor Butts mandated employees and council members to get tested for COVID-19 at the Forum. Mayor Butts allegedly went to his “personal” doctor for testing.
I meant to give you an update on Friday …I took the COVID-19 test at the Forum and it was strange.
They insist as soon as you are in the parking lot that you keep your windows up – a pretentious display of acting as if that open space is a sterilized zone, while people continue to use the perimeter as a workout zone. Then they give you a package containing the test swab and vial to place the swab in after they stand outside your vehicle gestering the to-do steps. You then drive forward and drop your baggie with the sample in an open container. Friday was a warm day and we were all tested the same day.
How long are those vials going to sit in the warm environment before being collected and taken to a lab? Who has my test?
Who has my DNA? Why wasn’t I given any documentation confirming I took the test or where I can follow up?
Why is Mayor Butts forcing us to give the Government our DNA when I haven’t exhibited any symptoms? We all know the US Govt history with science & Black people.
As far as I know there was no Executive Order mandating the test and we are unaware if the employees covered under bargaining groups discussed it either. None of us were notified by SEIU 721 about repercussions if we refused.
Basically Mayor Butts passively’-aggressively bullied us into taking the test. HR set up the appt and I guess the results will either be emailed directly to HR or our work email which the City has full access to. Why would my employer get MY test results before I do?
Is this a violation of HIPPA because we have not signed anything.
They are making me very skeptical about what’s the truth about COVID-19.
