Background: The SARS-CoV-2 virus has caused a pandemic. Little is known about the virus, so data is needed to form an effective public health response. Researchers want to count how many people have been exposed to COVID-19, learn about symptoms, and find out how many antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus a person may have in their blood over 1 year. This data could affect the response to current and future pandemics. Objective: To learn how many people from a sampling of adults in North Carolina develop antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus over 1 year. Eligibility: Healthy people age 18 and older who do not currently have COVID-19 Design: Participants will be screened with questions about their health. Participants will have five 30-minute visits at the Clinical Research Unit. At each visit, they will have blood drawn to see if they have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. If the test result is positive for antibodies, the participant will be tested to see if they currently have COVID-19. For this, a nasal or throat swab will be done, or saliva will be collected. They may do this test at the same visit as the blood draw, or they may schedule an extra visit. Around the time of their study visits, participants will take an online survey about themselves, their health, and COVID-19. It takes 10 minutes to complete. Every week for 52 weeks, they will also take a brief online survey about their symptoms. It takes 2 minutes to complete. They will be emailed a link to log in and fill out the surveys on a secure website. Participation will last for 1 year.
