Editor’s note: Welcome to Question of the Week, a forum for our subscribers to sound off on what they think. Each week, we pose a question to our subscribers and ask them to tell us what’s on their minds. (You can see a past example here.) To comment, simply sign up for the Talk Platform (create your profile here) and start chatting.

This week, we want to know about your experience getting tested for COVID-19.

Not everyone’s experience getting tested for COVID-19 has been identical. Some people have done a self-administered test; others had a professional do it for them. Some people got tested in a hospital or pop-up testing site; others got their tests at a pharmacy drive-thru. Some have waited for hours; others, only for a few minutes.

Have you or a loved one gotten tested for COVID-19? If so, what was the experience like for you, from the location and wait to the test itself? Let us know in the comments section below.
