An analysis of state-provided data on testing for the coronavirus shows only 12 percent — 9,265 — of the 72,492 residents in North Kingstown, South Kingstown and Narragansett have so far been tested for the virus, nearly five months into the pandemic.

Raimondo and Department of Health officials have done enough to encourage Southern Rhode Island residents to get tested for the coronavirus?
Last week, Governor Gina Raimondo announced an upcoming "pause" in Rhode Island which will limit a slew of businesses amid rising coronavirus case numbers. In addition, the state further restricted social gatherings to "one household," placing Thanksgiving plans for thousands of Rhode Islanders in jeopardy. Have the Governor's new restrictions altered your Thanksgiving Day plans? Let us know in this week's poll questions below:
