Flu and RSV required to be set up under a biosafety hood

We are looking to move our kits to our serology department from micro for flu, strep and RSV. When we were CAP accredited (years ago), we were cited under MIC.19840 for not processing the specimens under the biosafety hood. We are currently JC and have been unable to find a similar standard. Do any of you process these specimens in your main labs?

My issue is that these are performed in doctor's offices and clinics daily without a hood...why are we any different?

our clinics that have the Abbott ID Now use a splash guard, just like main lab.

Our main lab cepheid and Biofire are set up under the hood.

Our serology strep kit is still done on the bench.
