Testing is a proven way to minimize risk.

Even with the availability of COVID-19 vaccines for students five and over, testing is still an essential part of the fight against COVID-19 spread. Testing helps identify infected students and staff early, even if they show few or no symptoms.

In Utah, a testing program saved 13 schools over 109k in-person days. Download this PDF to read more about how routine COVID-19 testing reduces infection spread.
