OHSU Starts Wide-Scale COVID-19 Tracking Study In Oregon


The masks go on (mostly), while the numbers go up. Oregon is one of several states seeing a rise in the numbers of COVID-19 infections, with daily numbers roughly double what they were a month ago.

Oregon Health & Science University recently began an ambitious project to track cases in real time, to see numbers and patterns and to keep the economy and schools open. Up to 100,000 people could take part in the Key to Oregon study.

Principal Investigator Dr. Jackie Shannon and Study Leader Dr. Tyler TerMeer are our guests.
