Response to Steelrolled (Original post)

5. Testing has been reduced for couple of weeks due to labs backed up and other problems

In many areas of the country testing has run into problems of long waiting times and closures of sites.

In just my NC county which is not one of the larger metros, the drive through testing of 850 tests per week was halted a couple of weeks ago due to inability of labs to keep up with demand and problems with adequate staffing. We are supposed to resume next week but only for those with symptoms or known exposure and reservations/screening will be required in advance. So our numbers are definitely less than they would have been if the testing wasn't halted.
