This summary provides an overview of the Speaker Series presentation led by Dr. Krajden on ‘Guiding Our Public Health Response: Real-Time Integration of Diagnostics & Genomics,’ originally held on March 2, 2021. In his presentation, Dr. Krajden described the work undertaken by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) to create a dashboard to track testing for COVID-19, including test turnaround rates, positivity rates, etc. This data set has allowed for detailed tracking of COVID‑19 cases and was used to identify trends in COVID‑19 infections and inform real-time provincial public health measures.
