From the Key Takeaways: "[1] As researchers work to develop a vaccine and effective therapies for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], it is essential that states deploy appropriate testing to protect Americans. [2] States should focus on diagnostic tests to determine who has COVID-19, antibody tests to determine who had it, and random sampling tests to find disease prevalence. [3] Public buy-in is critical for testing programs to succeed. Officials should clearly outline goals, logistics, and candidates for testing."
