One thought on “Baker adds another virus case

  1. I heard about one of the cases in Baker, an elderly gentleman went to be tested and after filling out the required paperwork was told to go to the end of the line. This man said the line was moving very slow and decided he could not wait so he left and went home, well, two weeks later he received a notice telling him he had tested positive for covid-19. Since he was not tested how did he show positive?
