Health Department Requests COVID-19 Response Effort Supplies

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
The Hamilton County Health Department is asking any medical, dental, or other health offices to donate any of the following supplies to the Health Department for the COVID-19 pandemic response:

· Synthetic fiber swabs with plastic or aluminum shafts (these are similar to swabs used for other viral testing; ex: flu, measles, RVP). These can be refrigerated viral collection swabs. The swabs cannot be calcium alginate swabs or swabs with wooden shafts, as they may contain substances that inactivate some viruses and inhibit PCR testing.

· Sterile tubes containing 2-3 ml of viral transport media (ex.
universal viral transport), or Liquid Amies-based transport media.

· E-Swab by Copan (Catalogue # 481C and 482C) with regular or flex minitip applicator, or Opti-Swab by Puritan (Catalogue # LA-117), swab included in kit (Catalog # 3317-H).
