A surprising number of colleges are planning to open their campuses this fall amid the Covid-19 pandemic. If that holds true, colleges will be tasked with keeping track of hundreds of thousands of students, faculty, and staff members. This includes monitoring their social-distancing practices, testing for Covid-19 to ensure containment of the virus, and most importantly, informing anyone who may have been exposed.
Those practices will be shaped by a combination of federal, state, and municipal health and privacy guidelines. Joined by a panel of medical, government, and industry experts, Chronicle host Alex Kafka will lead a conversation around what contact tracing on campus really looks like for colleges, and how this will affect their reopening plans.
The session will explore a variety of reopening topics, including:
- What technologies and personnel will be necessary to effectively track and contain outbreaks;
- How to inspire effective, voluntary participation in contact tracing;
- How to balance technological and manual efforts;
- And how to manage the costs of these efforts amid serious budget shortfalls.
