Help Us Fight COVID-19

Join the DFW COVID-19 Prevalence Study to help guide decisions that will keep you and your family safe. UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources are conducting the study to see how common COVID-19 is in Dallas and Tarrant counties.

Your participation will help us get back to school, get back to work, and get back to our faith communities.

What Does Study Participation Involve?

Simply fill out a 10-minute survey to receive your free COVID-19 testing. We will provide a $20 gift code when we send your test results. We perform testing for active infection as well as antibodies for past infection. Patients with active infection are called within 1-2 days of testing to discuss next steps.

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. We also need to know why certain people are getting it more than others. For example, we know that COVID-19 affects more African Americans and Latinos. 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.

Get Tested

The process of getting tested is simple, painless, and takes no more than 15 minutes. Help us understand more about this virus, who is affected, and why.
