"Across the nation, scaled-up testing has been mired in problems of mismanagement, inefficiency, and undersupply. The Bolinas model charts a path around some of those obstacles. Since testing ended, a source book with photographs and instructions has been circulated. Communities in Los Angeles and Louisville are in the final stages of shaping their own efforts in the Bolinas mold. (Their testing won’t be comprehensive, but it will draw on the town’s methods.) Recently, Engeström spent time on a call with organizers in Camden, the London district, who also hope to adapt Bolinas’s efficiencies; the town’s circle of influence could expand from there. Many of the most effective responses to the pandemic have been led by island nations—New Zealand, Iceland, Taiwan, Hong Kong—where proactive, science-based leadership has been channelled through tight, inward connections. A lesson from those places, and from Bolinas, is that community cohesion can be marshalled against the virus that is keeping us apart."
