RADx Tech Webinar Series Returning to In-Person Instruction for K-12 Schools: Strategic Vision and Tactical Tools - RADx Tech Webinar Series Returning to In-Person Instruction for K-12 Schools: Strategic Vision and Tactical Tools - POCTRN
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxsm) initiative was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Returning to In-Person Instruction for K-12 Schools: Strategic Vision and Tactical Tools
Reopening schools for in-person instruction is a national priority for the benefit of children, families, and the economy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released a resource, Operational Strategy for K-12 Schools Through Phased Mitigation, with recommendations based on the best available evidence to enable schools to open safely and remain open. On this call, we will provide a brief overview and highlights from the resource followed by presentations on complementary tactical tools crafted by leadership from NIH’s RADx Tech initiative. These include: WhenToTest.org calculator, K-12 Playbook, Implementation Guide, and Test Connector.
