This is an abstract. The full journal article is available to read via the link in the Source information below.


High rates of asymptomatic infection suggest benefits to routine testing in congregate care settings. SARS-CoV-2 screening was undertaken in a single nursing facility without a known case of COVID-19, demonstrating an 85% prevalence among residents and 37% among staff. Serology was not helpful in identifying infections.

You can read an interview with a lead author of the study, Scott A. Goldberg, MD, MPH, here.
