From the Document: "The State of Wyoming faces unique challenges in terms of testing capacity for SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2]. There is only one laboratory, the Wyoming Public Health Laboratory (WPHL), that has the capacity, infrastructure, and expertise in performing complex (non-rapid) SARS-CoV-2 testing. As such, the Wyoming Department of Health's approach to testing 2% of the state's population monthly through a combination of approaches, including: [1] Expansion of testing capacity at the WPHL through procurement of high-throughput instrumentation and hiring of laboratory personnel; [2] Expansion of rapid testing capacity at laboratories across the state of Wyoming through purchasing of equipment or allocating testing supplies and specimen collection supplies; [3] Contracting with private reference laboratories to provide testing."
