I had a perfect experience using the Discovery Park testing site a few Fridays ago. Registered via phone on Thursday. Told to show up at DP at 8:30 -9 am. Was met there in the parking lot by someone expecting me, verified name and dob, gave me an informed consent to sign, handed that in, drove up a few more feet to pick up my test kit; drove up a few more feet to a nurse who explained the nasal testing, took my kit, took the swab and then said I could leave. Took less than 5 minutes.

I had a constituent suggest that an employee resource group be established for people with disabilities. We currently have ERGs through Diversity & Inclusion like UNeTe (for Hispanic/Latinx employees), Black Professional Network, and a Neurodiversity Professional Network but not one specifically for people with disabilities.
Sen. James Jackson (he/him)
01:12:03
We can talk about it with the EDI (equity, diversity, inclusion) subcommittee as well!
Sen. James Jackson (he/him)
