Abstract: As air and land borders are opening again and families are planning to get together in person this holiday season, we are going to discuss COVID-testing as a public health tool, and one that may be critically underutilized in this phase of the pandemic. Currently, in the U.S. COVID testing mostly occurs in persons showing symptoms (test-to-treat). Could we navigate in person meetings, the work place, family gatherings safer if we were to (rapid) test everyone right before getting together (test-to-stay)? Some countries around the world are using this path, Germany being one of them.”
