What is of paramount importance to this decision, and especially so when 
considering a university city such as Moscow, is the availability of 
testing capacities yielding accurate and timely results for individual 
and, accumulated, local infection results, or the lack thereof, in the 
preferable case.  The Governor needs encouragement to increase testing 
capabilities everywhere in the state, especially those locations that 
can be expected to have greater immigration soon.

As the academic year draws to close locally, and the usually quieter 
summer ensues, now is the time to work diligently and with full effort 
toward obtaining and perfecting local testing capabilities.  All 
relevant local organizations should have well-supplied, well-trained, 
and efficient, effective testing abilities well-honed for the arrival of 
the fall semester student population, from where ever they may have 
traveled.  One can only assume that the fall semester will carry an 
influx of viral infections, and the locality must be well-prepared, and 
mentally braced for the changes that influx will bring to the community.
