Impact of proactive testing

Explore what SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks can look like in workplaces, universities, and other group settings.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is the disease caused by the novel coronavirus known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

This interactive modeling tool was developed to help individuals explore the impact that proactive SARS-CoV-2 viral testing can have on mitigating outbreaks in workplaces, universities, and other group settings. We’ve focused our efforts on environments like workplaces and universities, because these settings generally involve prolonged, close contact between individuals, which makes them susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks.

This tool uses the SEIRS+ model and was developed in collaboration with modeling experts Carl Bergstrom and Ryan McGee from the University of Washington.
