Very little specific information out there. For decades, Target has had a practice of donating 5% of its profits to communities which it serves. Under these truly extraordinary circumstances - when some of the corporation's own lower-wage-level team members may not be able to afford necessary medical care, nutrition and housing for themselves and their families due to an unpredecented epidemic - is it possible that some of this donation of profits might go to help its own team members at a time of extreme need?

No tests available in my state without extreme respiratory distress requiring hospitalizations, or preexisting conditions like emphysema and COPD. No way to know here.



How very Whole Foods of them?
I tell people unless they are turning blue or on the way to the icu they probly aren't getting tested.

We had one. Supposedly it was someone who was hired less than a week before testing positive. They won't tell us who or what department with the exception of people who worked directly with the person.
