study is to determine if there may be COVID-19 virus in various samples we collect
from mother and child. These samples include mother’s breast milk, skin swab, saliva,

windows of time at your convenience inside the home. Participation in this study will
be for 90 days. You will be reimbursed a total of $60 ($30 after day 10 collection
and another $30 after the day 90 collection) via check.
