Monte Vista Partners with UCSD to Support Safe Reopening

UCSD Study at Monte Vista- FREE Weekly Covid Testing for Students and Staff

Monte Vista has been selected as one of 14 schools across the county to join a first of its kind study with UC San Diego Wertheim School of Public Health. The study is called SASEA: The Safer at School Early Alert Pilot.

As part of validating an early alert monitoring system, UCSD will offer free weekly diagnostic testing to all children and staff on campus (classic model) during the pilot phase. Researchers will compare these weekly tests to wastewater samples and surface swabs from Monte Vista and use this data to check the accuracy of these monitoring systems. With your help, we hope to develop an anonymous, low-cost monitoring system that can be used at schools and child cares across San Diego County and the nation.

Join us for a parent information meeting on Wednesday 11/4 at 6:00pm via zoom. Meet the researchers, and lead study epidemiologist Dr. Rebecca Fielding-Miller.
