  1. Of course it is low. The tests are not being done “correctly. At drive up they handled us the test kids and said to do it yourself with no instructions. Later I learned you must push the swab up your nose as far as it can go which is three to four inches otherwise you get a false reading. The drive through is a waste of time and money with misleading results.

    1. I thought Northwood had set up an obstacle driving course for teens that couldn’t take Driving School. WTH is that all about, with all the cones and stations?
      My guess: ANOTHER complete waste of our tax money
