County is actively pursuing testing resources for COVID-19 both domestically
and internationally in order to increase capacity for community testing. The process has required
research and evaluation that has resulted in several pending orders for
thousands of serology (antibody) and extraction test kits for use throughout
the county. Meanwhile the County continues to receive testing supplies
from commercial laboratories to support drive thru test sites. New test
kit products are evaluated on-a-daily-basis and the County is confident that
even more testing solutions will be available in the near future.
