COVID-19 Ideas

Sentinel Testing

Describe the idea or prototype you are proposing. What problem is it solving? :

Problem: Asymptomatic transmission of coronavirus means it's hard to know when it's spreading until it's too late to control the spread.

Idea: Test a randomly-selected member of each residence hall once a week (or every two weeks?). If the "sentinel" is positive, test the rest of the hall, and commence contact tracing for anyone who tests positive.
