The purpose of this project is to help healthcare workers determine if they have been unknowingly exposed to COVID-19, to measure how much immunity was generated by such exposure, and to identify those with the best immune responses as donors of high quality plasma for rescue treatment of patients with advanced COVID-19. The data will be used by scientists worldwide who are working to determine whether quantitative antibody measurements can be used to predict immunity in the overall workforce.
