Abstract

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.
