ELC Enhancing Detection: Washington DC Testing Plan
United States. Department of Health and Human Services
From the Document: "As of May 29th, approximately 37,881 residents of the District of Columbia have been tested for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. In addition to close contacts of all new positives, priority groups for testing include the following: [1] Hospitalized patients and healthcare facility workers with COVID-19 symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Many of the patients in this group are currently receiving testing within hospitals and through their health systems' occupational health programs. [2] Patients in long-term care facilities with symptoms; patients over the age of 65 with symptoms; patients with underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease who also have symptoms; and first responders with symptoms. [3] Critical infrastructure workers with symptoms; individuals who do not meet any of the above categories but have symptoms; healthcare facility workers and first responders; and individuals in detention centers and individuals experiencing homelessness with symptoms. DC Health in collaboration with the DC Public Health Laboratory is supporting COVID-19 testing in a myriad of ways. In addition to testing within hospitals, efforts have been directed toward standing up drive-thru testing sites, a mobile truck laboratory for skilled nursing facilities and group homes, and community mass screenings targeting the populations such as the homeless."

We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing.
