INSANE. I’m banned from making sure I don’t accidentally spread Covid? Going live with the e-mail on Instagram in 10 mins!
Owens was scheduled for a COVID test, but after the owner, Suzanna Lee, of Aspen Lab found out that it was Owens. The owner contacted Owens and told her that she wasn’t welcomed to the clinic, “I’ve just learned of this testing request, and as the owner of this business am going to refuse this booking and deny service. We cannot support anyone who has pro-actively worked to make this pandemic worse by spreading misinformation, politicizing and DISCOURAGING the wearing of masks and actively dissuading people from receiving life-saving vaccinations.
The other local testing option is the free kiosks by the city hall. They mail their tests to Texas and have inconsistent results times, do not take appointments so its walk in only midday weekdays in their back alley.
My team and myself have worked overtime, to exhaustion, paid, and underpaid this past year, spending our own capital to ensure that our community remains protected. It would be unfair to them and to the sacrifices we have all made this year to serve you.
