This unprecedented crisis has stressed our public health infrastructure, yet we will depend on a robust healthcare system in order to start reopening. While public health officials will be determining reopening based on their gating criteria and the Emergency Operations Command is the lead on public health operations, there is are numerous innovations rapidly occurring in the public health space in response to COVID-19.


The committee will research, identify, and support necessary public health technologies needed to scale up testing and surveillance, and identify deployable technologies and innovations. Given the rapid nature of change, it will help determine which opportunities are most worth of exploring further. It will examine specific issues such as personal protective equipment, temperature monitoring, testing capacity and analysis, serum testing, contact tracing, and other health technologies.

Including, but not limited to:

  • PPE
  • Testing Capacity and Analysis
  • Contact Tracing
  • Health Technology
  • Healthcare Workforce
