Screening Strategy

Find out how other school systems are making COVID screening work, and see the data their screening is providing.

Important notes! Screening will still be needed in the 2021-22 school year, since not everyone will be vaccinated. Also, screening helps prevent outbreaks even if not everyone participates. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good!

Finally, don’t waste time worrying that screening will give your population a “false sense of security.” Public-health research has shown that that’s not actually a thing. Want to see some data backing that up? Here ya go.
