Laboratory Outreach Communication System Calls

Laboratory outreach communication system calls
LOCS Call Survey

Please scan the QR code or click this link to complete a short survey about CDC’s Clinical Laboratory COVID-19 Response Calls. We will use the results to improve the timeliness and relevance of the information shared through these calls. Your response is anonymous; no personal identifying information will be requested or stored, and findings will be aggregated for the sole purpose of helping CDC better address laboratory needs.

CDC’s Division of Laboratory Systems (DLS) convenes regular Laboratory Outreach Communication System (LOCS) calls with clinical laboratories and other audiences. The calls are an opportunity for CDC and other participants (such as federal partners and professional organizations) to provide updates and answer questions from the laboratory and testing community. These calls take place on the third Monday of each month at 3:00 PM Eastern time. DLS posts the audio, slides, and transcripts online after each call.

To submit questions for consideration, email in advance or use the question and answer (Q&A) function in Zoom during the call. Because we anticipate a large number of participants on this call, and many questions, we may not be able to directly and immediately address every issue. However, we will note your questions and feedback and tailor the content of future calls accordingly.
