20 July 2020 Blog Post: LA County Places Limits on Testing
I had a curious phone call this week from a patient who was inquiring about COVID-19 testing. Asking her if she had any concerns about symptoms or potential exposure she said “what do I need to tell you to get a test?”
My stock response since I began COVID-19 testing in March has been to reference President Trump’s now infamous March 6th remark – “anybody who wants a test gets a test.” I have put zero restrictions on testing – even though I have had to scrounge for testing kits to accomplish such. I have not yet, and nor do I plan to deny a COVID-19 test for somebody who wants one.
You may have read this week that L.A. County has moved to a tiered testing system. I could not disagree more strongly with this approach. It is reactionary, short sighted and will ultimately lead to more cases.
