Members of BBI’s Husky Coronavirus Testing (HCT) Team were “truly, truly heroic” and “helped the university to continue our mission of public service throughout the pandemic,” UW President Ana Mari Cauce said June 8 at the university’s Distinguished Staff Award ceremony.

The HCT Team was honored for its innovation, one of five award categories; it was the only team award for 2023.

The team played a significant role to the UW’s COVID-19 Prevention Plan, which was launched in September of 2020. Tests were conducted at all three campuses, serving approximately 50,000 students and nearly 60,000 employees.
