Presentation overview

Modeling SARS-CoV-2 on a university campus

Motivation

  • We wanted to know if/how one could safely re-open college campuses.
  • Emory University approached my colleague Ben Lopman. We built a somewhat general model.

Methods

  • Simulation model for COVID-19 spread and screening/testing based control.

Modeling the impact of social distancing, contact tracing, and case isolation on COVID-19 spread

Motivation

  • Use a model, calibrated to COVID-19 case data, to determine the effectiveness of social distancing, contact tracing, and case isolation.
