ASU, World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation partner help companies get back to work

ASU, World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation partner help companies get back to work through a new initiative :The COVID-19 Diagnostics Commons — an interactive hub for the global community to access the very latest information about testing options and to share knowledge and practices for safely bringing back and keeping employees in the workplace during the COVID-19 era.

Real-world, timely and accessible data on workplace reopening, testing and employee safety initiatives is needed to get the global economy back on track. To that end, two critical resources are now available:

  • The COVID-19 Workplace Commons, which collects and disseminates data to employers, policymakers and funders to better equip them to make informed decisions about back-to-workplace policies, practices and priorities. The information is collected through the global survey quarterly.
  • The COVID-19 Testing Commons, a comprehensive database of COVID-19 tests worldwide containing information on all tests currently on the market and in the pipeline. It is updated regularly and allows users to search by multiple parameters

“Workers and consumers not only need to be safe, but also feel safe, and one of the best ways to do this is by expanded access to testing,” said Jonathan “Jono” D. Quick, managing director for pandemic response, preparedness and prevention at the Rockefeller Foundation and author of “The End of Epidemics.” “But with over 1,400 tests currently on the market or in the pipeline, businesses and public health administrators need the right tools to make the right purchase choices. The COVID-19 Testing Commons is that tool to help decision-makers find the tests that most closely match their needs.”
