Background: Researchers think that people s mental health and behavior will be very affected by the steps taken to slow the spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing. Also, the threat of disease and death, to people and their loved ones, can cause much stress. Researchers want to learn more about these stressors and how they are affecting people. Objective: To study the relationship of affective, cognitive, and behavioral responses to stressors related to COVID-19 with neuroimaging and behavioral data collected before COVID-19. Eligibility: English-speaking adults age 18 and older Design: This online study will include both new participants and those who have taken part in past National Institute of Mental Health studies. All will complete the same surveys and tasks. Participants will give their name and email address. They will get a username and password. The file that links their username to their personal data will be kept secure. Participants will complete a set of surveys about the following: - Sociodemographic data, such age, race, and income - Education and work status - Mental and medical illness and treatment - Family medical history - Mood - COVID-19 experience - Anxiety - Substance and alcohol use - Attention control - Other mental health related topics. Participants will complete a finger-tapping task. For this, they will press a key a certain number of times in a limited period. They will get to practice the task. After the task, they will complete a survey about it. It will take about 1 hour to complete the surveys and the task. About 8 months later, participants will be contacted to repeat the surveys and task. Compensation is provided.

This is a multicenter, US-only, phase 1, open-label, dose escalation, non-randomized study of the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of investigational ChAd and SAM SARS-CoV-2 vaccines in healthy adult subjects. Homologous and heterologous prime-boost vaccination schedules (Stage 1), as well as boost(s) after receipt of COVID-19 EUA/licensed vaccines (Stage 2) will be examined. Subjects' willingness to receive ChAd vaccines will be assessed and documented at the time of informed consent and considered to determine group assignments. This phase 1 study will enroll 17 Stage 1 and up to 118 Stage 2 subjects. Eligible subjects will be enrolled in different groups based on their age (18-60 years old and >60 years old) and their EUA/licensed COVID-19 vaccination status. A sentinel approach with 72-hour (Stage 1, and Stage 2, Groups 5, 6, 8-10, 12, 13-15) or 7-day observation times (Groups 7 and 11) will be used, before recruiting the remainder of each dose escalation group. Decisions about dose escalation will be determined by the SSC with consultation with the DSMB as needed after all subjects in each group have been observed through Day 8 post first study vaccination. All subjects will be followed through 12 months after their last study vaccination. Vaccinated subjects will be carefully monitored for exposure and infection to SARS-CoV-2 throughout the study. Escalation to the highest dose (10 µg) of SAM-S-TCE in younger subjects will proceed only following safety assessments of the 10 µg dose in older subjects for a period of 28 days post-vaccination. In addition, the dosage of SAM-S-TCE given as a double boost to subjects previously vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Ad26 COVID-19 EUA/licensed vaccine in Groups 8A, 8B, and 12A, 12B will be determined based on the dose escalation reactogenicity and immunogenicity results in Groups 5-7 and 9-11, respectively. After protocol version 9.0 was implemented, it was decided not to enroll subjects into Groups 7 and 8 because of competing priorities and predicted difficulties enrolling into these two groups. The primary objectives of this study are 1) To assess the safety and tolerability of different doses of ChAd-S or ChAd-S-TCE, and SAM-S or SAM-S-TCE when administered as prime-boost in healthy naïve adult subjects, 2) To assess the safety and tolerability of different doses of ChAd-S or ChAd-S-TCE, and SAM-S or SAM-S-TCE when administered as first or second boost in healthy adult subjects previously vaccinated with an mRNA or adenoviral-vectored COVID-19 EUA/licensed vaccine.

COVID-19 testing is essential to controlling the COVID-19 pandemic to break transmission chains and reduce community transmission. However, Black and Latino/Hispanic populations in lower status frontline essential occupations such as food preparation, retail, building maintenance, personal services, and in-home health care have serious barriers to COVID-19 testing and, therefore, insufficient testing rates. The proposed study will use the multiphase optimization strategy framework to address the problem of low COVID-19 testing rates for this population: We will test the effects of four distinct candidate intervention components and then create an efficient multicomponent made up of the most effective combination of the components that can be rapidly scaled up in community settings to boost COVID-19 testing rates.

The overall goal of this project is to advance the understanding of underlying mechanisms impacting performance fatigability and perceived fatigability in Veterans with post-COVID-19 fatigue and explore the safety and feasibility of a home-based "minimal-dose" resistance exercise program in this population. The central hypothesis is that declines in force capacity, skeletal muscle oxygen extraction, and affective responses to physical activity offer potential mechanisms through which fatigability is increased in Veterans with post-COVID-19 fatigue. Moreover, home-based resistance exercise delivered remotely may provide a safe and feasibility treatment option for targeting neuromuscular and neurobehavioral factors influencing fatigability severity in this population.

This megastudy is a massive randomized controlled trial. By randomizing participants to 10 different intervention conditions simultaneously, the investigators will be able to compare the effectiveness of different interventions to one another and to a control group (in which individuals will only receive the usual communications from their partner organization) to identify which interventions significantly increase vaccination rates. Pharmacy customers will be randomly assigned to receive one of the interventions designed by team scientists to encourage vaccination or to a control group. The baseline intervention will be based on the top-performing SMS intervention identified in the investigators previous megastudies on encouraging vaccination (Milkman et al., 2021b, 2022). Pharmacy customers will receive SMS messages conveying that a COVID booster vaccine is reserved or waiting for them at the pharmacy. Additional behavioral science messaging strategies will be tested by building off of this baseline intervention.

Chronic olfactory dysfunction from the COVID-19 pandemic is a growing public health crisis with up to 1.2 million people in the Unites States affected. Olfactory dysfunction impacts one's quality of life significantly by decreasing the enjoyment of foods, creating environmental safety concerns, and affecting one's ability to perform certain jobs. Olfactory dysfunction is also an independent predictor of anxiety, depression, and even mortality. While the pandemic has increased the interest by the scientific community in combating the burgeoning health crisis, few effective treatments currently exist for olfactory dysfunction. Furthermore, patients impacted by "long COVID," or chronic symptoms after an acute COVID-19 infection, experience impairments other than olfactory and gustatory dysfunction, such as chronic dyspnea, impaired memory and concentration, and severe fatigue. These symptoms have been hypothesized to be a result of sympathetic positive feedback loops and dysautonomia. Stellate ganglion blocks have been proposed to treat this hyper-sympathetic activation by blocking the sympathetic neuronal firing and resetting the balance of the autonomic nervous system. Studies prior to the COVID-19 pandemic have supported a beneficial effect of stellate ganglion blocks on olfactory dysfunction, and recent news reports and a published case series have described a dramatic benefit in both olfactory function and other long COVID symptoms in patients receiving stellate ganglion blocks. Therefore, we propose a single cohort prospective study to generate pilot data on the efficacy and safety of sequential stellate ganglion blocks for the treatment of COVID-19-induced olfactory dysfunction and other long COVID symptoms.

This study is a cooperative investigation funded by the NIH. The project is a collaboration among three major NIH Clinical Translational Science Awardees: 1) UCI (lead site with its affiliate CHOC), 2) Northwestern University (with its affiliate Lurie Children's Hospital), and 3) USC (with its affiliate Children's Hospital of Los Angeles). There is an increasing number of children who, through medical advances, now survive diseases and conditions that were once fatal, but which remain chronic and debilitating. A major challenge to improve both the immediate and long term care and health of such children has been the gap in our understanding of how to assess the biological effects of exercise. Like otherwise healthy children, children with chronic diseases and disabilities want to be physically active. The challenge is to determine what constitutes safe and beneficial level of physical activity when the underlying disease or condition [e.g., cystic fibrosis (CF) or sickle cell disease (SCD)] imposes physiological constraints on exercise that are not present in otherwise healthy children. Current exercise testing protocols were based on studies of athletes and high performing healthy individuals and were designed to test limits of performance at very high-intensity, unphysiological, maximal effort. These approaches are not optimal for children and adolescents with disease and disability. This project (REACH-Revamping Exercise Assessment in Child Health) is designed to address this gap. Cohorts of children will be identified with two major genetic diseases (CF and SCD) and measure exercise responses annually as they progress from early puberty to mid or late puberty over a 3-4year period. In addition, in the light of the pandemic, a group of children will be added who were affected by SARS-CoV-2 and investigate their responses to exercise. SARS-CoV-2 has similar long-term symptoms than CF and SCD have. Novel approaches to assessing physiological responses to exercise using advanced data analytics will be examined in relation to metrics of habitual physical activity, circulating biomarkers of inflammation and growth, leukocyte gene expression, and the impact of the underlying CF, SCD or SARS-CoV-2 condition. The data from this study will help to develop a toolkit of innovative metrics for exercise testing that will be made available to the research and clinical community.
