Accepts healthy volunteers


The purpose of this study is to understand how to prevent COVID-19 spread in a school like the Mary Cariola Center (MCC) in Rochester, NY by answering questions like these: how do activities in the school alter chances of infection? Are there people infected with the COVID-19 virus who have no symptoms? How is spread of COVID-19 affected by vaccination rates? Is there any hesitancy to get the vaccine and what are the reasons? This information will be used to help keep the school open and the students and staff safe.

Eligible participants are those that work at the Mary Cariola Center (MCC) and interact with the students at MCC who have a high risk of infection from COVID-19.

The study lasts for up to 16 months.
