What to expect with participation in this study



Learn more about the study and how the study may fit into the care you’re already receiving (or have received), then reach out to your doctor or study staff to answer any questions you may have about participating.


Read the consent form and decide whether you want to participate in the study. If so, then complete a quick survey to see if you meet the eligibility requirements for the study.



If you qualify, you will take an online questionnaire.

This electronic questionnaire will be administered during the study to collect information about your medical history, symptoms, and diagnostic tests performed for COVID-19. All information provided will be de-identified in accordance with HIPAA standards.


A mobile phlebotomist will work with you to schedule a visit to your house or location of your choice to collect a blood sample and nose or throat swab for the study. This visit with trained study staff is compliant with stay-at-home-orders and social distancing as it relates to healthcare and essential services. At the end of your visit, you will receive a $50 gift card for your participation in this study.



Your samples will help us study how the adaptive immune system responds to COVID-19.

Are you eligible?

Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 (currently have symptoms or have recovered) or were you exposed to someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks?

We’re looking for adults between the ages of 18-89 who live in the metro areas listed at the top of this page.
