The novel coronavirus (aka SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19) pandemic has dramatically transformed life for the entire United States in a matter of weeks and has resulted in logistic, medical, and economic challenges for individuals, households, communities, and states. CHASING COVID is a national study to understand the spread and impact of COVID-19 on individuals, households, and communities across the country.
The specific aims are to assess:
- recent symptoms and trends in symptoms
- uptake in messaging and behavior change
- impact of COVID-19 on general health
- healthcare access and employment
Ultimately and when available, we will assess incidence and attack rate using antibody testing.
