Texas Coronavirus Antibody Response Survey: Fall 2021 Update

Speaker: Drs. Kohl, Delclos, and Messiah
Length: 1:03:09 minutes

How bad is COVID-19 and the Delta Variant in Texas and how should schools respond?

As Texas schools adapt for learning in the 2021-2022 school year, experts at the UTHealth School of Public Health will provide updated information on a statewide COVID-19 antibody study called Texas CARES. Key topics of interest to school administrators and teachers will be covered, such as:
1. How should I answer questions from my students about COVID-19, the delta variant, vaccines, and antibodies?
2. What common sense strategies can I use for protecting my school from getting COVID-19 and spreading it to my community?
3. When will it be safe enough in my community to resume normal activities?
