Key to Oregon study on COVID-19: Oregonians can check mailboxes this week to see if they’ve been selected to participate

Oregonians will soon find out if they’ve been selected to participate in Key to Oregon, a research study led by Oregon Health & Science University, that will help provide vital information to help reopen the state, and keep it open.

Recruitment notifications will be sent – via mail – this evening, and are expected to hit mailboxes across the state in the coming days.

Households selected to participate will first receive a post card that will alert them of forthcoming enrollment information. A mailed letter, with specific directions to guide online enrollment, will follow shortly after.

Study researchers expect to contact 150,000 randomly selected households who fully represent the state, including our diversity in geography, socioeconomic status and communities of color. All members of a selected household over the age of 18 are eligible to join. The study hopes to enroll up to 100,000 participants. Participation in the study is voluntary.
