Very happy to read about coronavirus testing coming to Ward 7 no matter if you’re showing symptoms or not. I am also glad that Howard University is stepping up to bring this project to life. We need testing and more testing. I myself will spread the word for my friends east of the river.

Worth the Money

Although I enjoy The Informer being free, I am glad that you all are now asking for money. You’ve put out a paper every week for over 50 years! The community should give back what they can and do so happily. Every private and public media company asks for money all the time. You can’t read one line on the web without them asking for money or making you pay to continue reading. Anyway, ask and you shall receive.
