Abstract


There are people in Puerto Rico who, because of a disability, the state of their health, or because they are taking care of a person who requires supervision or has a disability, cannot physically go to a clinical laboratory to get tested for COVID-19. Because of the close contact for supervising and supporting the daily tasks of these populations, it is difficult for these families to implement the appropriate isolation at home. For this reason, we recommend performing the test at home through the services of a clinical laboratory. It is also crucial that a doctor provides the order or referral for taking the sample for the COVID-19 test of all the household members who live with the person with disabilities.

This document outlines a number of recommendations in order to facilitate the implementation of at-home COVID-19 laboratort tests.

Accessibility At Drive-thru Medical Sites

Abstract


Drive-thru medical sites are one way that hospitals and health departments provide intermittent medical services (such as administering the flu vaccine) with greater ease and/or safety for their patients. Typically consisting of pop-up tents and traffic cones, these temporary sites may be located in a parking lot at the hospital or a retail store or in a state fairground.

Whether these drive-thru medical services are funded and/or operated by the state, county, or city or a private business, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that the services are accessible to people with disabilities. This fact sheet lists considerations and strategies to promote accessibility at drive-thru medical sites, including those sites where patients may be asked to exit their vehicles.
