ABSTRACT

Interim Considerations for Institutions of Higher Education Administrators for SARS-CoV-2 Testing   [open pdf - 670KB]

From the Document: "As some institutions of higher education (IHEs) open in the United States, CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] offers considerations for ways in which IHEs can help protect students, faculty, and staff and slow the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Testing to diagnose COVID-19 is one component of a comprehensive strategy and should be used in conjunction with promoting behaviors that reduce spread, maintaining healthy environments, maintaining healthy operations, and preparing for when someone gets sick. These CDC considerations are meant to supplement--not replace--any federal, state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which IHEs must comply. Implementation should be guided by what is feasible, practical, and acceptable, as well as tailored to the needs of each community."
