BCCDC Modelling Research on Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing:
The BCCDC has provided two links to modelling information on asymptomatic COVID-19 testing:
A manuscript submitted for peer-review noting that the routine screening of unvaccinated individuals may be of limited benefit if vaccination coverage is 80% or greater within a university setting; and,
An online app to explore the modelling results.
We hope you find this BCCDC information helpful. Thank you for the important role you play in supporting the provincial COVID-19 response. Please share this update broadly within your respective institutions.
