In order for in-person schooling to resume, it will be necessary to instill a sense of confidence that it is safe to return. BD is hosting a virtual panel discussing the benefits of asymptomatic screening by serial testing for COVID-19 using rapid antigen tests. Featuring a panel of school and health officials, this webinar will share best practices on how to use the Biden administration’s funds for testing during this academic year and into the next, as well as guidance on how to set up an effective and efficient process for testing in schools. Many K-12 institutions have already developed processes that use testing to help bring their students and staff safely back to school. Their efforts are validating the value of testing and can serve as a blueprint for success to many other schools across the nation.
