MARCH 2021: BONE SCAN LEAD TESTING
As you may have heard at the February 27th town hall, we have received some questions about the bone scan lead testing for purposes of the settlement. As we obtain additional information we will provide an update. Please note that the settlement does not require a bone scan lead test. There are many options for obtaining compensation from the settlement that do not involve bone scan testing.
