Abstract

Providing evidence for the design and refinement of COVID-19 Scottish surveillance programmes, by estimating the level of COVID-19 infections in the community, their distribution among different age groups, and how these vary with time. This is essential to inform interventions, including the possibility of introducing "immunological passports" for the workforceand the easing of restrictions. The results of this project will directly inform current PHSPublic Health Scotland efforts to design a serology-based national surveillance program.
