Led by Dr. Jodie Guest, Rollins students spent many hours working on COVID-19 outbreaks across Georgia during the summer of 2020. The team provided free COVID-19 testing to those in communities hardest hit by the epidemic. In addition they worked with community partners to develop educational materials to promote PPE use and hygiene. The students in this group have received invaluable hands on experience serving vulnerable communities in Georgia while contributing meaningfully to their applied practical experiences. The outbreak response team is poised and ready to respond if called upon to help curb outbreaks in other regions of the state. This team is coordinating with Georgia Health Districts to determine the need for active response across the state.
