Bloom Health Partners Inc. has been awarded a state-wide contract for testing in Texas for kindergarten-to-grade-12 schools for the remainder of the 2022 school year. Bloom's program includes both rapid and lab testing to make up a complete program that covers the needs of schools as they navigate the pandemic. RT-PCR testing will be conducted in Bloom's Dallas-based laboratory. Rapid tests are being supplied by Bloom to schools, with results being managed on Bloom's cloud data platform.
Similar to Bloom's testing program at schools in the state of Alabama (see news release dated Nov. 29, 2021), families in Texas have the opportunity for their children to be tested on a voluntary basis. Bloom's Dallas facility is equipped to handle high-volume RT-PCR-based testing producing results within 24 hours. Rapid test supply chain is provided by Bloom with fulfilment supported by Bloom's Dallas facilities and team. The management of test data and results is supported by Bloom as part of the program. With both lab testing and rapid testing, Bloom will handle the high volume needs of schools that choose to work with Bloom in the program.
"Effective and reliable testing is critical to keeping schools safe and operational," said Andrew Morton, chief executive officer of Bloom. "As an occupational health tech provider, our team is well equipped to work with schools in Texas on a successful program. With operations and a team based in the Dallas area, we're excited to do our part for the state of Texas."
