What do you need to do:

a brief baseline questionnaire. You will then receive a by email or text message (your choice)
a weekly reminder with a link to a 2-question web survey asking if you have experienced any
acute illness or been vaccinated in the past week. If you have symptoms, we will ask a few
more specifics about your symptoms, onset, exposures, medical care, and treatment.
If you are on or near the UMCP campus:
You will be eligible for weekly ($25), monthly ($75),
and 4-month drawings (iPad) if you answer the questionnaire (for details see consent information).
If you report symptoms, we may invite you visit us at the Maryland School of Public Health so
that we can collect a swab to identify your infection and possibly ask you to provide an exhaled
breath sample. If you come in for testing, you will be compensated from $10 for a swab and up
to $180 for swab, breath and cough samples, depending on the time, effort, and tests performed.
