ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) awarded Carilion Clinic $566,309 in CARES Act funding to conduct a COVID-19 Seroprevalence Study meant to better understand the number of people who have the virus in southwest Virginia.

Health officials say the study is meant to measure SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in residents from 22 localities in Carilion’s service region. Even though Seroprevalence studies have been done statewide previously, Carilion says this is the first one dedicated to southwest Virginia.

Carilion is recruiting participants through enrollment that is open to the public. You can find more about the study by clicking here.
