RADx COVID-19, Flu and RSV Test Research Study
We are partnering with the National Institutes of Health's Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) program to assess new rapid COVID-19, flu and RSV tests for accuracy and usability.
If you participate in this study, you will receive a COVID-19 or multiplex (COVID-19, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV) test. You may also receive a rapid test kit with instructions to perform a test on yourself or your child. Additionally, we may ask that you give another sample that may include a nasal swab, throat swab, saliva or blood (fingerstick).
We are looking for test samples and feedback from children and adults with COVID-19, flu and RSV symptoms.
Participants must be experiencing COVID-19, flu and RSV symptoms and must be within 7 days of symptoms onset. Symptoms may include: Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea and diarrhea.
Participants must be ages 2 and older. All children under the age of 18 require a guardian consent to participate.
You will receive a $50 gift card to Wal-Mart or Target for your participation in the study.
