Let's Get Started!


The study will collect information from you and other household members on symptoms and patterns of contacts to learn how the virus is transmitted. We will ask everyone to complete interviews about factors that may modify the risk of infection, including exposures and vaccination, and to complete daily diaries. We will also ask you to self-collect daily nasal swabs and to self-collect a blood finger prick sample at enrollment and at 4-6 weeks after enrollment. The collection of data and samples should take about 10-15 minutes a day. We plan to follow participants for 10 days. During this period, we will coordinate with you several times to receive study materials or to pick up the collected data/samples. Your household will be compensated for participating in this study.
