Characterizing SARS-CoV-2-specific Immunity in Individuals Who Have Recovered From COVID-19

Research Question:
How is the body's immune response to natural SARS-CoV-2 infection characterized?

Basic Study Information

The purpose of this study is to learn more about infection with and recovery from the virus called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Some people know this virus by the name "coronavirus." It can cause the disease called COVID-19. The information gained from the study will be used to help develop better tests for SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 disease and may help in developing future vaccines and treatments by allowing researchers to determine the difference between the body's immune response to natural SARS-CoV-2 infection and immunization with a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Inclusion Criteria: Age 18 or older / Have had a positive test for SARS-CoV-2 / Reports resolution of COVID-19 within 1-8 weeks of enrollment OR, if asymptomatic infection, reports positive SARS-CoV-2 test within 2-10 weeks of enrollment.
