TheVoiceOfJoyce For Governors, Mayors & Public Health. The white paper on Rapid Tests available to the Public to reopen schools & offices effectively. I understand there are 53 million kids Nationwide ready for school. That would require testing them, their families and all associated with the school systems a minimum of 3-5 days a week.
