Who's going trust those test swabs at this point? Have the vials those swabs come in been tested for Covid 19?

And what happens if they test positive?
Quarantine them to the sidewalk on 3rd & Broadway?

Are they also testing them for TB and HIV ?

Isolation is available for those who test positive or are with symptoms and awaiting results. Very few positive results. Early education efforts may have resulted in very few cases among the homeless. Yes HIV testing is offered. I dont know about TB.
