$0.00 This activity will identify pathways to creating effective, practical and sustainable testing strategies for COVID-19 that can accelerate a return to normalcy and allow schools and other facilities to remain open. It will relay to participants how determining the goal of testing is the key factor to establishing an optimal testing strategy through consideration of multiple factors, including test type, sensitivity and turnaround time as well as program implementation and costs. Current testing programs will be discussed, examining how the selection of these elements can be adapted to satisfy the needs of the target community as well as the testing program’s goals. The roles that communication and partnership can play in establishing effective strategies, enhancing safety, enabling improved implementation and shaping public policy will also be examined.

$0.00 The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and present new health burdens, including the emergence of the more easily transmissible Delta variant (i.e., the B.1.617.2. variant, a mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus), which highlights the need for continued support of vaccination, and the development of chronic long-term sequelae collectively termed “long COVID,” which affects 10–20 percent of COVID-19-positive patients with new, persistent symptoms ranging from joint pain and chronic shortness of breath to cognitive dysfunction. Significant knowledge gaps exist in regard to these concerns; many patients with long COVID risk having symptoms dismissed, and more clinical studies are needed on the infectious profile of the Delta variant and how to best utilize vaccines and potential boosters to combat infections.
