ACT: Alliance for Comprehensive Testing

ACT: Alliance for Comprehensive Testing

Testing will continue to play an important role in helping to fight against COVID-19 even as vaccination numbers grow. We need comprehensive testing to help curb the spread of variants, safeguard the unvaccinated, and support ongoing wellness. Testing can also help manage the harm caused by “long haul” COVID-19 conditions and uncover hidden pandemics caused by delayed care and healthcare disparities.

Quest Diagnostics started ACT with a diverse coalition of nonprofit, community, and business organizations. Beyond COVID-19, ACT recognizes the importance of expanding its focus to broader community wellness and new comprehensive testing resources for other public health challenges, such as the opioid epidemic and drug misuse. We are committed to educating the public on the value of comprehensive testing for the good of public health now and in the future.
