Palmer: Why testing in Burlington first?

  • 2

I am a little confused. Why on earth was the COVID-19 testing done in Burlington first, rather than Racine? The city of Racine has a population of 77,312 residents and Burlington only 10,287. This decision limits the access to people who have no transportation and many seniors. I am confused. Can someone please explain this?
