As the new year begins, we all hope for better health and education outcomes for our next generation of students. However, the rise of the “tridemic” cases of Covid-19, RSV, and Influenza has caused concern for students, parents, and educators. Some California counties are re-considering mask mandates and mandatory health testing to help mitigate the spread of these diseases. The latest or new variant of omicron to receive major press, XBB.1.5 or “Kraken,” is a subvariant of Omicron and spreads faster, according to news outlets.
The ongoing pandemic has taught us that testing and screening can help flatten the curve of cases, ICU admissions, and deaths. With students returning to in-person learning, it’s essential to ensure that we have the right strategies and partners in place to keep our schools safe. One such partner is My Care Labs, a leading provider of customized testing for students and staff.
