Ohio State News: Ohio State experts create COVID-19 surveillance tool for schools

Ohio State News: Ohio State experts create COVID-19 surveillance tool for schools. “A kindergartner develops a sore throat, so he visits the school nurse. A teacher and two students at the middle school next door call in sick with fevers. Across town, a second-grader at another elementary school in the district goes home after a bad cough sets in. All this information is entered into a system developed at Ohio State called the COVID-19 Analytics and Targeted Surveillance System (CATS). School district staff and the local public health department monitor the system, watching for signs of coronavirus outbreaks.”
