ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: Indiana Testing Plan   [open pdf - 633KB]

From the Document: "Indiana is projected to test 150,000 Hoosiers in May 2020 (2.2% of the population). Compared to April, this represents a 60,000 test-per-month increase. The State of Indiana has the goal of increasing specimen collection, testing, and reporting to 900,000 per month by the end of December 2020. Here is our plan to achieve these numbers. Indiana will use a three-pronged approach to maximize COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] testing. First, help clinical laboratories scale operations based on the needs of their local communities. Second, continue to establish high-throughput, centralized mechanisms to test what local community resources cannot cover. [...] Finally, continue to distribute near-point-of-care (near-POC) instruments to test vulnerable populations, including rural or underserved populations and correctional facilities."
