On reduced days, Reconnect will schedule a reduced percentage of tests on the day or days of your choosing. Reduced testing can be used on days when fewer staff members are available to administer tests, such as holidays or weekends.

The reduced testing feature is off by default. Please reach out to Reconnect Support if this is something your program would like to use.

Note: Reduced testing is still subject to randomness and may be explicitly overridden in cases where clients need to test to meet their profile requirements.
