To date, testing has proven itself a vital tool in the fight against COVID-19. It also has the opportunity to help speed the US’ path to economic recovery. Fast, convenient, cheap, accurate, and widely used tests can help identify infected individuals who should self-isolate, those who have recovered, and individuals who pose low contagion risks.

In “Widespread Home Testing Can Keep People Safe And Get Them Back To Work—Here’s How” on the Health Affairs blog, Woollett, Bai, and Pyenson discuss the following topics:

  • Current tests that are being developed (viral test and antibody test)
  • Home testing
  • Immunization passport recommendations
