YOUR GRANDMA, YOU WILL STAY AWAY NEXT WEEK. GOVERNOR SUNUNU: THE MESSAGE AROUND THANKSGIVING IS BE VERY CAREFUL. THE NUMBERS ARE REAL AND THE SURGE ISRAEL. KEEP YOUR GATHERINGS LIMITED, HOPEFULLY TO IMMEDIATE FAMILY. AMY: IT SEEMS EVERYONE NEEDS OR WANTS A COVID TEST RIGHT NOW. BUT HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY A NEGATIVE TEST IS NOT A FREE PASS TO MINGLE OR TRAVEL OR NOT WEAR A MASK. THE INCUBATION TIME OF THE VIRUS MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PREDICT. >> THERE IS A FAIRLY WIDE TIME PERIOD WHERE THE VIRUS COULD BE REPLICATING IN YOUR BODY AND THE TEST MAY NOT PICK IT U AMY: THINGS MAY SEEM QUIET AT THE JFK COLISEUM, BUT THE FREE TESTING CLINIC IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, AND ALL 300 APPOINTMENTS THROUGH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT IN MANCHESTER ARE BOOKED THIS WEEK. >> IF YOU ARE GOING TO A PRIMARY CARE OFFICE WHERE YOU SEEK YOUR MEDICAL CARE, THEY ARE LIKELY ONLY GOING TO TEST YOU IF YOU ARE SYMPTOMATIC. OUR LOCATION WILL TEST PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF SYMPTOMS. AMY: THE TESTING, THE MASK WEARING, THE SOCIAL DISTANCING ISN’T ABOUT YOU, SAY HEALTH EXPERTS. IT’S ABOUT THOSE YOU LOVE. THE TRANSMISSION IS SILENT AND INVISIBLE. >> WE HAVE TO BE MINDFUL THAT NOT ALL OF OUR FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE A ROBUST IMMUNE SYSTEM. AMY: COVID FATIGUE IS REAL BUT GOVERNOR SUNUNU IS URGING GRANITE STATERS TO BUCKLE DOWN FOR JUST A FEW MORE WEEKS. GOVERNOR SUNUNU: WE HAVE A VACCINE COMING, THERE IS A BRIGHT LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. AMY: NEW INFORMATION ABOUT A VACCINE IS STARTING TO EMERGE. IT MAY BE A TWO INJECTION PROCESS AND MAY NOT BE WIDELY AVAILABLE UNTIL SPRING 2021. REPORT
