Home for the Holidays: Know the Travel Risks Before You Go

As Covid-19 outbreaks surge in several states, the choice to see family this holiday season gets more complicated by the day. Thankfully, Georgia Tech developed a tool that can help estimate the potential risk of exposure.

“Think of our research and the risk assessment tool like a weather map. We aren’t telling you to get your umbrella or to stay inside, but we are telling you that outside it is raining," said Clio Andris.

CDC Foundation, CIDI Battle Covid-19 with Accessibility

Following health and public safety orders during a pandemic is especially difficult for more than 61 million Americans who navigate life with a disability. They require access and support at home, at work, at school, within their community, and while traveling. To that end, the CDC Foundation awarded a contract to the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI) to help assess, develop, and produce accessible emergency materials in response to COVID-19.
