"Um...I'm asking if you know of any COVID-19 patients that may require first responder assistance at some point."

"And I'm asking how much you got, boy."

Pretty sure subby didn't RTFA.  On the grand scale of mind-twistingly outrageous things said/done just this week, this is about as close to a nothingburger as one can get.

The only way the south will rise again is with a crane to lift them from their Hoveraround to the grave.

Aren't there laws that prevent them from sharing patient data?

At this point, with what we know about the asymptomatic vectors, the correct answer is "everybody".

I'm beginning to think that the US actually lost the civil war since we've been stuck with their stupid descendants ever since.

The south was never ever high enough to have risen, other than Virginia and Maryland. The rest of the south has always been the poorest, least educated and least committed-to-the-union portion of the country.

Always will be too

There's nothing wrong with what they are doing. Lack of positive tests does not mean lack of virus. The first responders need to assume everyone is a carrier anyway.

Handing out that information would be a violation of health privacy. I'd say if you don't like it, vote for someone that will get hipaa repealed, but I don't think there are any candidates pushing that.
