A private sector-led initiative was launched last month comprised of 17 laboratories in Tijuana with the ability to conduct up to 500 COVID-19 tests onsite at a discounted rate. In some cases, businesses are covering the cost for their employees. Results are available within 24 hours and submitted into a database which maps positive results. The effort also helps identify vulnerable neighborhoods and areas across the region, which will help their strategy to combat the virus.
