Sisters + Cars

My sister lives in West Palm Beach and I live in Jupiter. She doesn’t drive and last week she had symptoms similar to the ones for coronavirus. I reached out and told her if she wants to go get tested to let me know and I can drive her but we have to make an appointment, find a mask and some gloves for us to not spread it between each other. I am glad that I am here for her and I have a car. But it had me thinking, how else are people that do not have transportation and are not feeling well getting tested? All the testing sites are drive thru. If people go to the hospital aren’t they just turned away? None of the healthcare providers are talking about what to do if you don’t have a car.
