    Complete lies from the MA Dept of Health, from which their objective is to EXTEND the virus, a common-cold, not eradicate it. Look at the people doing these tests and providing results, they look (and act) exactly like that fat flight attendant from Spirit Airlines who opposed an Alligator Mask of the US Flag. The first thing CBS Boston (WBZ) can do is ditch the BS gif image of cases above. What do they think this is, a Mickey Mouse arcade of wizardry?
