The efficacy and availability of testing methods for COVID-19 continues to be top of mind for the dairy industry, as we begin to think about how to return to normalcy.

When will a test be available? Are the test results accurate? Why are there drive-through testing in some areas but not others? Why do some tests only take a few minutes and others take 2-3 days?  How long does it take to get test results if you are fortunate enough to get tested? Are we testing for the virus or the antibodies? If I tested positive in the past, can I become infected again after recovering? What is the story with testing and closing the meat packing plants in several states? So many questions!

Dr. Steven Ostroff, former Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, explains the answers to these questions and helps us to understand why the story on testing isn’t as simple as it may appear in this IDFA webinar recorded Wednesday, April 29, 2020.
