ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: Kentucky Testing Plan   [open pdf - 529KB]

From the Document: "Kentucky's estimated population is 4.5 million residents. To reach the monthly 2% minimum testing target, 90,000 tests/month (3,000 tests/day) will need to be performed within the commonwealth. Through the Gravity Diagnostics contract, Kentucky has the capacity to perform 125,000 tests/month or 5,000 tests/day (Monday-Saturday), exceeding the monthly minimum. The Division of Laboratory Services (DLS) has recently expanded its testing capacity to approximately 240 specimens/day (Monday-Sunday). In addition to the current capacity, DPH must continue to increase the availability and accessibility of testing. To stop transmission of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], the primary goals are to identify as close to 100% of infected persons as quickly as possible and isolate cases immediately, as well as identify and quarantine their close contacts and monitor for symptoms"
