From the Document: "The Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) is engaging a number of partners in long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, homeless programs, universities, etc. to establish active surveillance programs to regularly screen persons for symptoms and recommend COVID [coronavirus disease 2019] testing at a low threshold (e.g., only one of the following present: subjective fever, chills, cough, or sore throat; or for certain populations such as elderly, altered mentation or acute change in activities of daily living). Specimens from such persons would be directed to SLD [State Laboratories Division] for both COVID-19 and respiratory pathogen panel (RPP) testing to allow monitoring of all potential respiratory pathogens and gain an understanding of their activity and trends in relation to each other."
