On social media, the governor touted his and First Lady Yumi Hogan’s success in buying 500,000 COVID-19 tests from South Korea with helping to expand the state’s testing capacity “to cover outbreaks, clusters, and hotspots across the state.” Last month while announcing the $9 million purchase, Hogan said he wanted to try to get to 20,000 tests administered daily.

In addition, the governor said there will be universal testing at the two poultry processing plants on the Eastern Shore in addition to a screening site set up at Perdue Stadium in Salisbury. Hundreds of poultry workers in the state, many in Wicomico County, have tested positive for COVID-19.
