    Most Americans are waiting more than three days for their coronavirus test results, undermining the need to quickly isolate people and contact trace, a new survey reveals. Researchers found that 63 percent of those who've been tested for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, did not get results back for at least 72 hours. The average wait was four days and, for about five percent of surveyors, they wait to learn if they were positive or negative was 14 days. The team, led by Northeastern University in Boston, says a person is contagious for about a week so delaying results by even just one day increases the risk of an infected person passing the virus on to someone else.  ...

    (CNN) — If college campuses want to remain open this fall, it may take frequent screening of college students, according to a modeling study published Friday in the journal JAMA Network Open. The researchers found that screening college students every two days — even with a low-quality test catching 70% of positive Covid-19 cases — is a cost-effective regimen, estimated to keep infections at a more controllable number than screening weekly with a higher-quality test. But if students and colleges adhere to strict policies such as mandated indoor masking and handwashing, the authors said less frequent testing may be adequate. Beware false-positives The researchers also found that too much testing risks generating false-positive cases that may undermine student confidence in...

    NEW YORK – A Georgia night camp affected by a coronavirus outbreak took many precautions, but did not compel campers to wear face masks or adequate ventilation in buildings, according to a government report released Friday. The camp followed disinfection rules and required staff to wear face masks, but campers did not have to wear face shields. Health officials said “relatively large” groups of children slept in the same cabin where they regularly sang and cheered, which likely led to the spread.
