Biden's Pick for Director of CDC Supports Frequent Campus COVID Testing

Inside Higher Education reports that President-Elect Joe Biden's choice to lead the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has advocated for frequent COVID testing on campus.

From Inside Higher Education: "Dr. Rochelle Walensky, chief of infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, is co-author of an influential modeling study arguing for the need for colleges to test students every two days in order to prevent outbreaks. The article, published in July in JAMA Network Open, proposed a testing strategy that far exceeded that recommended by the CDC, which has not to date recommended mass testing of students."
