Evidence about economic and social responses
Below we provide the ‘best’ living evidence syntheses currently available (i.e., the highest quality, most regularly updated living evidence syntheses) about economic and social responses to COVID-19. All other evidence syntheses can be found in the searchable COVID-END inventory of evidence syntheses, which is organized using the COVID-END taxonomy of decisions.

|Reducing transmission in educational settings||2021-07-22||7/9||No||When infection prevention and control measures are in place and adhered to, the risk of transmission among children in schools, daycares and camps, and from children to adults more generally is probably low||Yes (row content last checked on 2022-11-22)||Rapid review||Other||National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools.

|2022-01-03||8/10||No||The risk of transmission of COVID-19 within post-secondary institutions and the effects of strategies to mitigate on-campus outbreaks are currently uncertain, while variable reports have been found for test positivity among students and/or faculty and staff||Yes (row content last checked on 2022-11-22)||Rapid review||Other||National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools.

|2021-09-14||10/11||Yes||The effects of using a strategy of test‐based attendance compared to routine isolation after having contact with a COVID-19 case are uncertain in terms of infection rates, and test-based attendance may have little or no difference in terms of COVID‐related absences.||Yes (row content last checked on 2022-11-22)||Full review||Benefits and harms||Pizarro AB, Persad E, Durao S, Nussbaumer-Streit B, Engela-Volker JS, McElvenny D, et al.
