Hearing unusual traffic today on SWMA-8 (Statewide Mutual Aid 8) on project SAFE-T. Frequent references to health departments. I wonder if some agency is temporarily using this talkgroup for operations related to COVID-19. Does anyone know anything about this?

I've been listening to it all morning it's been non stop traffic. I do believe it's related to the current event.

Thanks for the notice! Not hearing much now and will continue to monitor.
Hopefully more tests and PPE.

Has anyone caught much on the statewide mutual aid or regional mutual aid channels about the COVID-19 response. I saw above someone had caught some on SW-9 but it seems to be quiet on my scanner.

SW8 was active on Friday 3/20/20 for some sort of delivery detail but that's all I have really caught. I've gotten several hits on ISDH talkgroups but no voice traffic. (10675 H2H North, 10700 Epidemiology) Lots of joins / logins, i'm assuming they're doing functionality checks on radios.

Today, it was 88 units checking in on SWMA-4 as having arrived at destination or made delivery.

This is medical surplus supplies delivered from National Guard to statewide hospitals. Deliveries being made by DOT and ISP units. Have heard this traffic on the SWMA talk groups.
