Life for Laboratories after COVID-19 Media Briefing

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) recently hosted its second virtual media forum of 2021, Life for Laboratories after COVID-19, in its ongoing commitment to educating media and the public on COVID-19 testing and the pandemic.

During the session, which was moderated by Speaker of the CAP House of Delegates Kathryn Knight, MD, FCAP, CAP President Patrick Godbey, MD, FCAP and Chair of the Council on Government and Professional Affairs Jonathan Myles, MD, FCAP discussed the challenges of managing the impact of COVID-19 on laboratories and patient access. The group also discussed the impact of the latest COVID-19 federal testing programs during the first 100 days of the Biden administration. Additionally, the group discussed the implications for patients who postponed their care because of the pandemic and the issues laboratories face when patients come back for care.
