COVID-19 Research Testing: RADx Study

Do you have COVID-19 symptoms or have you been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? You may be eligible for rapid testing through a research study being conducted at Johns Hopkins University.


Why Participate

Rapid Testing, Rapid Results: The process takes about 5 minutes, and you’ll receive your results within 48 hours—a much quicker turn-around than is provided by most testing sites.

Gold Standard: You’ll get the standard nasal pharyngeal swab test for COVID-19, plus you will take your own nasal swab from just inside the nose and provide saliva so we can evaluate COVID-19 tests currently in development for speed and accuracy of results.

Convenience & Safety:  There’s no line to wait in—we schedule confirmed appointment times with you at one of two participating Johns Hopkins COVID testing locations which are safely located outdoors.

Bonus: You’ll receive a gift card in appreciation for participating in this important effort.
