After a refreshing break for the holidays, CATCH is back and ready to see participants! The 2018-2019 flu season is gearing up, with the CDC reporting high to moderate flu activity for the Maryland/DC/Virginia area as of the end of the week of December 22, 2018. We anticipate even more flu activity, especially on the UMD campus when students return for the Spring 2019 semester.
So remember, if you start feeling sick with cold and/or flu symptoms, contact the CATCH the Virus Study right away! Your participation is critical for helping us understand Influenza and other respiratory virus transmission!
