CDC/DHS/UW COVID-19 Public Health Investigation Survey and Antibody Testing- November 9th-12th

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) to collect additional data from students living in residence halls to improve response to COVID-19 on campus.

All interested students living in residence halls are invited to be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. We will be offering testing at Carson Gulley Center November 9th and November 10th from 10am-4:30pm, and at Gordon Dining and Event Center on November 11th and 12th from 10am-4:30pm. No appointments are necessary.

We encourage interested students to participate whether they have had COVID-19 previously or not. In addition, we want to invite students who participated in this investigation at the beginning of the semester to return. Students who did not participate in the last round of sampling are equally welcome. All results will be reported within two weeks of sample collection via email.

As part of this public health investigation, we are also asking all students living in residence halls to complete a short online Qualtrics survey. This survey will ask for information about your living situation, your demographic information, your health, and your attitudes and behaviors surrounding COVID-19. Completion of this survey is voluntary.

This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. You can complete it now at:
