  1. a95%CI stands for the 95% confidence intervals from 50 model realizations.
  2. bRelative effectiveness = (Baseline attack rate -Strategy-specific attack rate)/Baseline attack rate.
  3. Table 3 compares the overall attack rates and relative effectiveness resulted from three discontinuous weekend-extension strategies (Wed, Tue+Thur, and Mon+Wed+Fri). Sensitivity analysis was conducted on each strategy under five compliance levels of 0%, 50%, 75%, 90%, and 100%.
