The DFW COVID-19 Prevalence Study is now closed to new participants. We are currently contacting a group of existing participants for repeat antibody testing. If you have any questions about your participation please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-648-5005. Study results can be found here.
Understanding who has COVID-19 and how it spreads
To stop COVID-19, we must have more information. We need to understand where the virus is spreading and why certain people are getting it more than others. For example, we know that COVID-19 affects more African Americans and Latinos. We also need to know how long COVID antibodies remain in people who have had COVID and why some people have symptoms long after infection (i.e. “long-hauler” symptoms).
The DFW COVID-19 Prevalence Study will help us understand why. Results of the study will be used to guide decisions that will help keep our communities and families safe.
Funding for this study has been provided by the Lyda Hill Foundation and others. We are grateful for this support.
We will be updating this website as the study progresses, so please check back.
