In order to implement the state public health officer order released July 26, your hospital or health system may need to add additional testing for unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated workers. There are several resources available through the State of California if you need to create additional testing capacity.
For immediate testing needs, contact your Medical Health Operational Area Coordinator for items available in the state stockpile. Currently, there are swabs, viral test media, and Abbott BinaxNOW test kits available. In addition, the COVID-19 Testing Task Force website has a list of over 200 laboratories with testing capacity and a comprehensive section to assist in developing or expanding testing sites.
