When Jennifer Bonamar’s son had COVID-19 symptoms in late September, she took him to a state-sponsored testing site in Sarasota.
Bonamar was told the results would come back in three to five days.
As the family waited, Bonamar required her sons to isolate.
“I had my kids quarantined in their rooms, with their masks on if come out of the room and bringing dinners to their rooms and you’ve got dishes,” she said. “You’re trying to do all the right things so life is really on hold while you’re waiting to hear back on the results.”
