Welcome to the Aviation Operations During COVID-19 Business Restart and Recovery: Testing Facilities and Vaccine Distribution course.
COVID-19 testing, if implemented in a coordinated and consistent risk-based manner, can help to reduce reliance on travel restrictions and restrictive quarantine measures. Testing, therefore, can play a big role in the recovery of air travel.
Vaccines are also critical to aviation restart and recovery and airports play a central role in facilitating the rapid and safe delivery of large volumes of vaccines and the associated medical equipment.
This course will provide information on the provision of COVID-19 testing facilities at airports and explores key considerations for airport operators when it comes to vaccine distribution.
On completion of this course you will be able to:
- Recognize the key role that COVID-19 testing at airports can play in States’ overall COVID-19 risk management strategy.
