Study suggests colleges would need to frequently test all students for COVID-19 to reopen safely
DETROIT A new study is looking at what it would take for colleges to reopen safely. The findings suggest frequently testing all of the students would be necessary to keep classes on campus and the coronavirus (COVID-19) under control. In the hypothetical study, all were living on campus and none had immunity to COVID-19. Testing students every two days would cost about $470 per student, per semester. Testing every two days, even with a lower-quality test, still prevented more hypothetical infections than weekly testing with a more expensive test.
