Evaluating the Cost-Effectiveness of COVID-19 Screening Strategies in California Workplaces

Investigator: Guntas Padda, MS
Sponsor: Global Health Sciences Education

Location(s): United States


Background: The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced many industries in the United States to either temporarily shut down workplaces or shift to remote work. While the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have called for the implementation of health screenings in the workplace, neither authority specifies the optimal screening modality to be used.

Research Question: What are the optimal COVID-19 screening strategies to guide the reopening of workplaces in California during the COVID-19 pandemic?
