The FDA is blocking COVID-19 testing at point-of-care facilities such as doctors’ offices and clinics, and instead insisting that, in many cases, they be performed at “high complexity labs,” of which there are only a very few nationwide. This is yet another unfortunate example of the FDA’s complete lack of flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic. This agency needs to stop getting in the way of widespread testing with excessive red tape.
Write to the FDA, with a copy to Congress, telling them to expand access to serological testing.
Please stop blocking access to serological tests for COVID-19
