ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: Idaho Testing Plan   [open pdf - 588KB]

From the Document: "In April, the Governor of Idaho established a Testing Taskforce to determine the current testing capacity in the state and to set goals for testing over the next several months. The Taskforce documented significant gaps in testing capacity in the state and noted specific areas of the state with little testing. The Taskforce also noted that a key to the success of reopening Idaho's economy is increasing testing significantly. This will include a distributed network of local clinical testing laboratories to supplement the testing provided by reference laboratories. Local accurate and timely testing using only FDA Emergency Use Authorization methods in the appropriate setting is necessary to provide rapid SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] testing for symptomatic persons in the community, healthcare workers, hospitalized patients, long-term care residents and staff, and other high priority populations."
