A U-N-M-C pilot project that tests O-P-S students and faculty showed higher COVID-19 positive rates than what have been previously reported. Researchers say infection rates detected by the program were two-and-a-half times higher for staff and nearly six times higher for students than what was routinely observed. Six O-P-S schools participated in the pilot program in late 2020 and early 2021.
