ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: Colorado Testing Plan   [open pdf - 727KB]

From the Document: "In order to contain the spread of the virus and stop future outbreaks, based on public health guidance, Colorado plans to maintain a 1 positive to 10 negative diagnostic test ratio over a rolling 7 day period by July 1. This ratio allows for flexibility and scaling based on current circumstances. Until that target is met, Colorado's plan is to scale up testing to 10,000/day between our State Public Health Laboratory (State Lab) and commercial labs. As the flu season in the fall and winter approach Colorado plans to scale up testing in excess of 17,000 tests per day. Due to supply constraints to date (reagents and swabs), Colorado has been unable to meet these goals, though we are close to being able to test approximately 2% of our population per month. Over the last 2 weeks, Colorado has run 3000-5000 tests per day."
