At a time when COVID-19 positive cases continue to increase rapidly on the Island, Laboratorios Toledo, one of the main chains of clinical laboratories at the local level, reported that they will be limiting molecular tests.
In a letter Aimed at customers and that has already gone around on social networks, the company explained that after a meeting with the Department of Health and following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC for short) English), they will only be receiving samples from patients classified as Priority 1 and Priority 2. These categories are limited to hospitalized and emergency rooms with symptoms, doctors, nurses, and patients at risk.
Thus, they announced that they will not be accepting samples of tourists or travelers abroad. They will also not attend cases of nursing homes that are being worked by the Department of Health. They also explained that in suspected cases due to occupational or family exposure, it will be decided with the “contact traicing” system who will be worthy of performing the test.
