Sylvester Turner “strongly encourages” participation.
[Ed. Note: Let’s make a deal… I get to stick YOU with a needle, THEN you can stick me. Fair?]

Democratic Mayor Sylvester Turner has signed off on a new study that will see city employees visit randomly selected homes in Houston to collect blood samples for COVID-19 antibody testing.
The study is being conducted by the Houston Health Department in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Household members will be asked to answer a survey and give a blood sample. For some households, all members of the household will be asked to participate.
Authorities say the tests are necessary to develop a deeper insight into how COVID-19 spreads through the community and how many people were previously infected with the virus.
The Mayor said the program would be voluntary, but urged citizens to take part.
