    Someone needs to check on the Whitten Center. The residents are starting to test positive for Covid 19. Workers are not showing up for work and the ones that do are working double shifts with the patients that are positive. And because of this, the workers that have been exposed have not been tested yet by the staff there. So they technically could be spreading it to other patients and their families. Some authority in our state government needs to get on this NOW. Before the first deaths at Whitten center occur.
