A Multicenter, Prospective Study of COVID-19 Using Real-Time Syndromic Surveillance, Scheduled At-home Serologic Testing, and Electronic Health Records

About this Study

Researchers at UMMC are partnering with UMMC healthcare workers and patients to better understand the spread of COVID-19. Study participants are asked to complete short online questionnaires over several months about possible exposures, symptoms, and healthcare visits. Some volunteers may be asked to complete an in-home test kit for antibodies to COVID-19.

What is the purpose and goal of this study?

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is a global public health emergency. By studying who has been exposed and possibly infected, better identifying the timing and circumstances of exposure, and where infection patterns of the COVID-19 are advancing, researchers can help the medical community better understand the pandemic and develop strategies and treatments to contain and possibly eliminate it.

The goal of this study is to collect information about the community’s COVID-19 exposures, symptoms, and health care visits due to the disease.  If you are a health care worker, the study will collect information on your use of personal protective equipment.

There is no cost for participating.

The information collected about you is for research purposes only. This information will not be used to guide your medical care. Your doctor or health care provider will not have access to this information.
