Just Like in School, How You Test Makes a Big Difference.
It’s not a stretch to say the impact of this COVID-19 pandemic has left a lasting effect on us all. The challenge to adjust to new modes of learning and business has not only bore innovative solutions and industry-wide cooperation but a flood of ever-changing COVID-19 information. When faced with the complex decision about how to safely transition back to in-person learning understanding the facts delivers the best, informed solutions.
While vaccination of teachers and staff marks an important step in enabling safe in-person education, the role of testing remains critical, especially given that most K–12 students continue to be ineligible for vaccination. In addition, for those vaccinated, repeat viral exposure has been shown to reduce antibody protection.
Introducing systematic, noninvasive, pain-free, and accurate testing can enable schools to identify positive cases protecting students, teachers, and staff against additional viral complications we know of as well as the ones we don’t yet.
A testing program with the right partner is easy to implement, scalable, and cost-efficient. Schools can increase confidence in returning to safe in-person learning opportunities with well-established and supported testing protocols.
