COVID- 19 Deep South Biosafety Worker Training Program (WTP)

In June 2020, the Deep South Biosafety (DSB) Working Training Program (WTP) received a subaward from the Alabama Fire College Worker Safety Training to conduct worker-based training to prevent and reduce exposure of hospital employees, emergency first responders, and other essential workers who are at risk of exposure to Coronavirus through their work duties

Partnering with investigators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (Schools of Medicine and Public Health), the Deep South Biosafety WTP will expand the work completed as part the UAB Deep South Biosafety and Infectious Disease Response Training Consortium (1UH4ES027070), which focused on the Ebola Virus Disease.
