Any other programs suspend drug testing during the stay at home order? I'm in WV and we're on our 3rd week of suspended tests...

No word on suspension in Ohio but I have not been selected. I have heard some states are putting peoples programs on hold, so their time 'counted' stops. I am so grateful that hasn't happened yet.

In NJ testing has not been suspended and if anything we appear to be getting tested more frequently at 3 times a month instead of twice a month since February. Many Quest Labs have closed and hours are being reduced making testing all the more difficult in a state hit hard by COVID. I would rather this though, instead of a suspended monitoring program where your time served stops and therefore delays the program completion.

I am in TX. No suspension of program (phew!) and I am still able to test at Quest. So far, my testing has remained the same. 2-3 times per month.

They said we wouldn't get added time or testing but they didn't say when it would resume so it could be any time either way. I was just curious what other states were doing.

Indiana suspended testing but I received an email this morning stating testing has been reinstated.

Anyone know if TNPAP is making exceptions for nurses to work if they have not received their monitoring agreement?

In PA: I got an email on 4/17, saying we can still do recovery trek as normal. OR we can now do an at-home option, PROOF saliva testing. You download an app on your phone, it video records the collection process & COC stuff. Then it's sent in. They sent packs of three tests at once for $204 (68/test) and $16 shipping. But they evidently split up the billing so it's not all at once. So I guess it depends which options you usually get for UDS, on whether it's cheaper or not than the normal recovery trek method.

But it's another option. I guess that's a good thing...

Thats actually amazing.. you are sort of being treated like a human! I have heard nothing in Ohio. I never reach out to my case manager. I get a snarky rude reply that insinuates I should be able to read their minds.

Five more months...
