From the Document: "Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) is utilizing multiple avenues in order to increase and maintain testing capacity to thoroughly provide access to Nebraskans in both the urban population centers and in the rural/frontier areas on a consistent basis. In order to accomplish, the goal of testing at least 2% of the state's population (estimated at 38,700 tests/month or 1,300 tests/day based on 2019 U.S. Census estimates) NDHHS is working with local public health department partners; medical and health care professional associations; public and private laboratories; health care facilities, systems, and providers; large employers such as distributors, manufacturers, and meat processing facilities; pharmacies; academic institutions; as well as many others. The main strategies NDHHS is utilizing include (1) identifying and maximizing testing platforms throughout the state; (2) identifying points-of-care to perform small and large scale testing; (3) identifying areas, industries, and populations that are at an increased risk for infection or severe outcomes; and (4) localized and statewide communication and outreach plans."
