Researchers want to learn the best testing strategies to detect COVID-19 in people who may or may not have symptoms.

The COVID-19 Test Us study seeks to understand and develop new approaches to testing that work best to stop the spread of COVID-19.

These approaches will look at the best timing for tests and formats of tests that can be taken at home, work or school.

Why is this research being done?

Looking at new ways to test for COVID-19 helps researchers learn which methods are accurate, quick and easy to use.
