Help us understand why some people recover differently from COVID-19

Our goal is to enroll about 1,050 participants with COVID-19 and 150 without, and we need your help. In Illinois, any adult may be eligible to participate in the RECOVER Study. We are now seeking volunteers currently infected with COVID or those who have had COVID for the FIRST time in the past 3 weeks.
