Why are some Covid-19 tests excluded in some US states?

The P.SE-mod-decided migration was rejected for a good reason by the Med.SE mod. I agree with the latter that the answer to the q almost certainly isn't a medical rationale, but probably has something to do with state regulations.... which is why I asked on P.SE in the first place.

Unfortunately, I can't even flag the q here now, because the flag goes to Med SE, still. So, I'm asking here (on meta) for the q to be re-opened here, on P.SE.

I see I can edit the q here though the history page, but I can't flag for mod or vote to reopen from there.

I am not sure why Medical Science Stack Exchange thinks that they would be worse at answering questions about a disease testing than us. Perhaps they are just sick of Covid-19 questions? Anyway, I reopend the question.

  • Thank you. I'm curious how you were able to do that. If I click on the q link on the main page it still goes to the deleted med SE page. Hopefully that aspect it will get sorted by itself. Commented Apr 22, 2020 at 0:07
