HIV Testing Day

At Tuesday might's commission meeting there will be proclamation declaring Jun 27, 2017 as HIV Testing Day.

According to the SunSentinel, Lake Worth is the city with the highest percentage of same-sex households in all of Florida. About 250 households, or 1.9%.  I thought the gay population was much higher in Lake Worth.

As 1.1 million people in the US are living with HIV, and 1 in 7 of them don't know it, the city of Lake Worth urges all residents of the city of Lake Worth, Florida, to be tested for HIV to know his/her status and to take part in other activities and observances designed to increase awareness and understanding of HIV/AIDS.
