What should be testing compliance, and face-mask-use/ 6ft distancing compliance for COVID-19 control in universities?

Effective COVID-19 control at universities are dependent on contact rate, asymptomatic testing compliance, and face-mask-use/ 6ft distancing compliance. Preliminary results from applying our previous simple SEIR model(https://medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.21.20158303v1.full.pdf). But more specific to a university plan of mass-testing twice per week. Online app of model: https://covid-university.herokuapp.com

COVID-19 simulation(v2)

Version 2 of simulation V2 is released. This is an interactive simulation tool for evaluating combinations of contact reduction, contact tracing and testing, and universal testing needed for efficient phased reopening . This version allows evaluations of multiple alternative combinations, flexibility to change units costs, and flexibility in setting analytic time-period. Great work by @xinmengzhao [ Read More ]
