We are recruiting new onset cases of COVID-19 to come to SPH for a new study. We are trying to find out if people with the infection are shedding infectious virus in their breath and whether surgical and homemade masks help reduce the amount shed into the air. You can learn more about the new study at this website: https://go.umd.edu/stopcovid.
Members of the CATCH study cohort who report symptoms and are able to come to campus for testing will be tested for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. If they test positive for COVID-19 they will be given the opportunity to enroll in our new study.
