U.S. COVID-19 Testing Has Dropped Dramatically

As more U.S. residents receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, testing for the virus has plummeted, dropping by a third in two months. The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that President Joe Biden signed earlier this month includes nearly $48 billion that local and state public health agencies may use to increase testing. The legislation also calls for the development of a national, evidence-based strategy to help public health agencies with testing and contact tracing. In California, as well as in some other states, testing volume is linked closely to the level of COVID-19 restrictions. “Losing the contact tracing is the biggest loss from a public health perspective,” said Kelly Wroblewski, director of infectious disease programs at the Association of Public Health Laboratories.
