St. Luke's seeks more COVID-19 study participants
The RECOVER study, which looks at ways COVID-19 spreads in communities, needs more frontline workers, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, to enroll.
DULUTH — St. Luke’s is looking for new participants to join its RECOVER study, which is done in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and five other research sites in the United States.
The RECOVER (Research on the Epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 in Essential Response Personnel) study is looking at how COVID-19 moves through populations of people, and has been used to prove efficacy of COVID vaccines, monitor first responder perceptions of the vaccine, and study antibody response.
Health care workers, first responders and anyone whose job involves interacting with others outside the house for at least 20 hours a week are eligible to participate in the study. Participants do not need to be patients at St. Luke's. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated participants are welcome, St. Luke's said in a news release.
People already participating in the study can earn a $25 referral bonus.
