A key concern amid the COVID-19 pandemic is the safe return of children, teachers, staff to schools.
GeoACT (Geospatial Agent-based Model for COVID-19 Transmission) simulates a range of scenario data to help schools evaluate and improve their reopening plans to prevent super-spreader events and outbreaks.
Along with integrating our model into the school ecosystem, GeoACT extends its capability to activities beyond school-hours. By accounting for transmission, ventilation in confined spaces and using real-time case data on specific routes, GeoACT successfully simulates the spread of COVID-19 aboard school buses.Learn More
Our school model takes user-input school-specific data such as floor-plans, class schedules, furniture layouts, as well as planned pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical interventions to estimate the extent of COVID-19 transmission in specific schools. The GeoACT model then blends this with the best available science governing COVID-19 transmission dynamics to provide users an estimate of the extent of COVID-19 transmission as well as the spatial distributions of case loads in specific schools.Learn More
