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.
