This week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidelines encouraging fully vaccinated persons to wear masks indoors in areas of high or substantial transmission. Due to the contagiousness of the Delta variant, the CDC projects that case numbers will increase in the coming weeks. This will likely result in a significant proportion of U.S. counties considered areas of high or substantial transmission. Surveillance testing for COVID-19 is an essential public health tool in the fight against this pandemic.
“Teachers, students, parents and administrators do not want to see a return to remote learning,” said Scott Storer, Chief Executive Officer of Affinity. “Affinity’s no-cost COVID-19 tests through the federal Operation Expanded Testing program not only offer peace of mind, they can help ensure students are safe from contagious COVID-19 variants as they return to classrooms.”
