ORCHARDS Study Update
If your student is experiencing respiratory symptoms, your family may be eligible to participate in the UW Oregon Child Absenteeism due to Respiratory Disease Study (ORCHARDS). This study looks at household transmission of COVID-19, Influenza and other respiratory viruses. If eligible, research staff will drop off study materials outside of your home for completing 3 nasal swab collections over a 2 week period. Since this is a research study, COVID-19 results may not be received as quickly as they would be at general testing sites. Your family will receive a $50 gift card for participating in this study. Call 608-265-3164 for more details.
