Active Sentinel Testing

Active Sentinel testing ends April 22. Declining positive COVID test results eliminate the need for continued active sentinel testing, says epidemiologist Suzanne Judd, Ph.D. This decline in positive cases is in large part due to vaccinations and adherence to safety measures by the campus community, and it is important to continue those. The decision to end the active sentinel testing program was made in consultation with public health, infectious disease and testing experts; UAB can resume testing should the need arise.
