SPREADING THE WORD
It is important to spread the word within the target community as you launch your new mass testing site. Here are a few ways to get the word out:

Have regular debriefing sessions with staff to see what is working well and what can be improved upon.
Consider collecting feedback from patients who have visited your testing site via an online survey or over the phone.
Based on your observations and feedback from staff and patients, tweak your model to improve process flow.
Review training materials and safety protocols with your team regularly. Repetition is key here!
Your team will be under a lot of pressure each day. Schedule time for 1:1 check-ins to see how they are coping both mentally and physically. Let your team know you are there to support them.
