Description:
This study enrolls adults from the emergency department and the community who have a confirmed COVID-19 infection and can provide the results of their positive PCR testing for COVID. The purpose of this research study is to help us control the spread of COVID-19 by having accessible means of testing for the disease. If successful, this would allow individuals to determine if they have COVID-19 without leaving their home, which may limit the spread of the disease. We expect that you will be in this study for 1 day. A home collection kit will be brought to your home by a courier. You will be asked to use the home kit to prick your finger and place several drops of blood in a collection tube that we will have analyzed using the new test that we are studying. Once you have collected your blood you will place it in a mailing envelope with a prepaid label that we will provide and call delivery service. The delivery service will pick up your sample from your home and deliver it to us. You will also need to answer a few questions about your symptoms and your demographics with us by phone and provide a copy of your PCR COVID-19 test results. This study takes place in Buffalo, NY Read More
