From the Document: "With the rapid spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and in the absence of evidence-informed guidance, state and local policymakers have had to put policies in place quickly and with little evidence to support their choices or little consideration of the potentially serious trade-offs. Thus, there is an urgent need for a comprehensive and systematic assessment of potential public health interventions to address COVID-19 and when to relax them. This document describes the interdisciplinary and multisectoral approach RAND researchers used to develop the COVID-19 Decision Support Tool, which is designed to fill that need."
