RECOVER Study: COVID-19 infection and illness rates in Essential Workers

This study is a multi-site prospective study focusing on SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19, infections among essential workers (EW). EW are at high-risk because they are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Further research is needed in order to help identify occupational groups that may be more vulnerable within EW. This study is voluntary, meaning you decide whether or not you want to participate. The purpose of this study is to understand the risks of infection and the immune response against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
