With cases increasing and Fall Semester ending, academic institutions must prepare for Winter and Spring 2021. As schools consider how to bring students back safely and before widespread vaccination is available, assurance testing plays a significant role in that equation.
Anecdotal evidence from Fall Semester finds that schools that conducted baseline and assurance testing had fewer large and uncontrolled outbreaks compared to schools that did not have some form of asymptomatic testing in place.
In this informative webinar, the Acheson Group’s Ben Miller, (Ph.D., MPH), CIC Health’s Boris Perlovsky, and University of Minnesota Genomics Center's Kenny Beckman (Ph.D.) will discuss what they’ve learned from working with various academic institutions testing in the fall.
This webinar will provide answers to some of the most frequently asked questions around COVID-19 testing—what tests are available, how do I choose the most appropriate test based on sensitivity and confidence level, what populations should be tested, and how do I design an effective testing program.
