Photos: Washington U. School of Med. deploys COVID saliva testing

Washington University School of Medicine, using a $5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, has begun administering the COVID-19 saliva test it developed in the Special School District of St. Louis County in search of asymptomatic carriers among teachers initially. The test, which is reportedly 99% accurate, is distributed weekly on a voluntary basis. Subjects testing positive  are notified that evening with a phone call. Washington U. doctors hope to begin providing the rapid-result tests to students by mid December.
