Current CDC guidelines provide measures to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus by social distancing, wearing a mask, avoiding indoor crowded spaces and washing or sanitizing hands frequently. The CDC recommendations for SARS-CoV-2 testing have been developed based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and are subject to change as additional information becomes available. This session will focus on the continued importance of testing as more of the public becomes vaccinated. In addition, information will be presented regarding testing access and education of the public on social responsibility during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.
