We are Now Recruiting for Our Long COVID Study
We're actively recruiting participants for a study on Long COVID and its impact on residents in our health district!
Long COVID is when you are still sick many months after getting COVID-19. You do not need to be officially diagnosed with Long COVID in order to participate in this study. We want to learn about any symptoms you may have 2 or more months after a COVID-19 infection.
If you are interested in participating in our study, you can fill out the interest form at https://redcap.link/cvhdlongcovidstudy/ or call 804-664-4520. A member of our team will then reach out to you, review consent and complete a phone interview. We will then follow up at 3 and 6 months after the initial interview to review your symptoms.
