CoMMinS aims to give us an understanding of COVID-19 infection dynamics centred around school pupils and staff, and onward transmission to family contacts. The project will run during the 2020/21 school year as the reopening of schools in September will bring new challenges and new opportunities to study the natural history of COVID-19 in young people. The project will collect data from 4000 school pupils and 1000 staff in Bristol schools, including a monthly COVID-19 test. There are several nested projects including a study of the impact on mental wellbeing and evaluation of a handwashing intervention.
