ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: USVI Testing Plan   [open pdf - 520KB]

From the Document: "Due to the relatively small population base, approximately 105,000 persons, all symptomatic cases and their contacts have been able to be tested with support from CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. More recently this is entirewly [sic] being conducted locally. These supplies have been difficult to obtain but the DOH [Department of Health] has 5000 tests currently on hand and will work closely with Hologic and the Federal Government to procure additional supplies as warranted by testing demand. At current testing rates these supplies are likely to last up to 90 days. The expected testing demand in USVI [U.S. Virgin Islands] to maintain testing of all symptomatic cases and contacts is extremely low in comparison to other jurisdictions. The DOH also has the capacity to perform Hologic Fusion testing, which has a lower user base nationally, and could provide for contingency testing if those supplies become available. These have been purchased but the Territory has never been allocated these resources."
