Thank you, Dr. Lillian, for the reminder to stay connected to community and to reach out to the vulnerable and isolated. <3

A question came up around testing turnaround and capacity. We are seeing a 2-3 day turnaround for our hospital testing. Our Triage Centers are seeing 3-4 day turnaround. There efforts at the UW and the State lab to increase capacity to decrease turnaround times as well as allow for more testing. Also, many hospital systems are looking to bring the testing in-house to be able to increase capacity and decrease turnaround times.
