NYC schools hire Fulgent Genetics

Excerpt

The city announced it had hired a company called Fulgent Genetics to conduct the school testing . . . The city is planning to randomly test about 10 percent to 20 percent of students, teachers and staffers at each school once a month, which could mean processing 60,000 to 120,000 tests every month. Officials hope to return test results in 48 hours and provide individual students with their results, city officials said.
