Risks



We expect the risks for being in this study to be small. Getting blood drawn may cause minor pain when the needle is inserted, very occasionally fainting, and some possible bruising afterward.

Although all information on you, your health, samples you provide, and testing results will be kept in a secured data base, there is a risk that an unauthorized person could get access to this data. We believe the chance this will happen is very small and we will do everything we can to protect your privacy.

Your employer may also have rules that require you to notify them if you become aware that you tested positive for Covid-19, and may require you to take time off which may impact your income, sick time/paid time off bank. We will not notify your employer, but you should check with your organizational rules related to this.
