There are many ways to organize groups into pools.
For example, elementary and middle school students often already attend school in pods. So, schools with K-8 students can choose to use those existing pods as pooling groups.
When organizing your pools for test day, we have seen schools create a list or spreadsheet that encompasses:
- The Pooled Kit ID
- Pool Name or ID (an easy reference for you - e.g. “Mr. Smith’s class”
- Number of swabs in the tube
- Pool Participants
- Contact information
- Confirmation of Consent Form
