Brookings City Manager Janell Howard is spreading misinformation about COVID.

At the recent city council meeting, she made several comments about the COVID tests given at St. Timothy's as not 'real' tests. This puts her in the same league as Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida and Greg Abbott, governor of Texas, states where people are dying because of their misinformation.

Ms. Howard is wrong. St. Timothy's is virtually the only source of a COVID test in Brookings and it is very 'real' and certified. St. Tim's also offers all three versions of the COVID vaccine and something else you will not find at city hall these days, compassion and very real help.

Where are the city postings about how to stay safe during this time when the COVID numbers in Brookings are soaring? Why have the county health services failed? The city and the county are both failures while St. Tim's is saving the day. Tell me again why the city of Brookings is trying to shut down St. Timothy's.

Ms. Howard is supposedly an educated person, so she should know to do her research before publicly speaking. Especially, with the lives of our citizens at risk.
