COVID-19 testing for colleges and universities

As many colleges and universities prepare to reopen, one recurring question is whether and how to conduct COVID-19 testing on some or all of those returning to the campus community.

On Wednesday, 12 August, Hogan Lovells hosted a webinar titled COVID-19 testing for colleges and universities. The webinar discussed how testing fits into other safety measures, the federal and state rules surrounding laboratory testing of students and employees, who has access to test results, who bears the cost of testing, the practical limits of the value of testing, what to do upon learning of a positive test, and how to handle difficult situations such as employees or students refusing to be tested or to comply with school policies. We also discussed potential future developments such as use of antibody testing and rapid at-home testing.
