ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: LA County Testing Plan   [open pdf - 493KB]

From the Document: "Los Angeles County (LAC) will meet the goal of testing 2% of the County population, or ~200,000 individuals each month. LAC is currently performing over 350,000 test/month through our clinical providers, public health departments, and community testing sites. Initial efforts during the emergency focused on outbreak investigations and community testing access through drive-through and walk-through sites often located in non-clinical settings (e.g. event venues and malls). In the coming months, we are working with providers countywide to move the majority of community testing into health care settings, while ramping up public health-led surveillance, contact and outbreak operations. This clinically integrated approach will improve the value of testing performed while ensuring close follow-up and family- and community- centered counseling and management post-testing. We are working closely with countywide testing partners to enhance their access to testing capacity and supplies, personnel, personal protective equipment, and training and technical assistance."
