Data4Action: Phase 2
This study is being done by researchers at The Pennsylvania State University. The goal of this research is to measure the level of Coronavirus Disease-19 (COVID-19) exposure and the social, economic, and behavioral implications of the pandemic in the Centre County and PSU student community. Approximately 2000 residents of Centre County and approximately 1000 PSU students (up to a maximum of 1500) will take part in this research study. We will measure the level of Coronavirus exposure in the region and its changes over time through collection of small blood, saliva, and hair samples 4 times over one year from participants. We will also measure changes in employment, education, social relationships, and well-being over time (as the pandemic evolves) using participant surveys. Participants receive results that indicate whether they may have had Coronavirus in the past, but results will not indicate whether they have a current, active infection.
