Members of the Prevention Policy Modeling Lab have been actively engaged in modeling and analysis for the COVID-19 response.

Real-Time Tracking of COVID-19 in the U.S.

PPML members Nick Menzies, Ted Cohen, and Josh Salomon, with Melanie Chitwood, Marcus Russi, and colleagues, contribute to the Covidestim project, which conducts real-time estimates of COVID-19 outcomes and state and county levels.

COVID-19 Forecasting and Scenario Analysis

PPML members helped to establish the COVID-19 Statistics, Policy Modeling and Epidemiology Collective (C-SPEC). C-SPEC has developed several open-source models for forecasts, scenario analysis and hospital planning.

Modeling for California Counties

PPML member Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert leads ongoing efforts in collaboration with the California Department of Public Health to develop models, forecasts and scenario analyses for all counties in California using the SC-COSMO simulation modeling framework.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing Model

PPML developed a simple interactive model to evaluate the potential impact of contact tracing programs in the context of loosened physical distancing measures.
