DHS Science & Technology (S&T) is partnering with state, local and industry innovators to help communities mitigate risks and respond to the compounding pressures of natural disasters and the pandemic.
To better understand the stability of SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces and understand the potential risk of contact transmission, the present study was conducted to examine the influence of environmental conditions, matrix composition, and droplet size on the surface persistence of SARS-CoV-2.
This study was conducted to examine the efficacy of eight disinfectants that are representative of major classes of disinfectants found in liquid cleaners to reduce the viral load on contaminated surfaces.
A special thank you to the staff of DHS S&T, our government, private sector, and academic partners, and those who have served on the front lines to keep our nation safe and healthy, and a toast to all the amazing things that 2021 will hopefully bring!
The holiday season is usually a time of celebrations and joyous memory-making with friends, family, and colleagues. This year will be different for many people.
DHS S&T, in partnership with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory, will conduct tests in a real-world environment to determine the most effective measures to reduce the spread of viruses on public transit.
Staying active during the holiday season this year will require planning, determination, and even creativity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Peak flu season is approaching, and it is important to know the signs and symptoms of the flu in case you become ill.
S&T’s Biometric Technology Rally focused on the ability of acquisition systems and matching algorithms to recognize travelers without asking them to remove their masks, thereby reducing risk for frontline workers.
