Purpose:

This mixed methods study evaluates the effectiveness and cost of a healthcare worker focused outreach intervention strategy versus community organization led outreach to explore contextual factors (individual, family, and community) affecting COVID-19 testing implementation outcomes and scalability.


Study summary:

In Aim 2, the investigators conduct a mixed methods study to evaluate the effectiveness and cost of: (1) the healthcare worker focused outreach intervention strategy versus (2) community organization led outreach working with community based organizations. The investigators explore contextual factors (individual, family, and community) affecting COVID-19 testing implementation outcomes and scalability. The primary outcome is uptake of COVID-19 testing using the novel Rutgers Clinical Genomics Laboratory/RUCDR saliva test, the first FDA authorized diagnostic test using saliva to detect SARS-CoV-2 for non-invasive, home based self-testing. To compare participation rates in the two arms, our primary outcome, the investigators will use data on the number of tests performed per month up to a 12 month study period. For each intervention, the start time is the date of first attempted contact with potential participants and the end date is either the end of the study period, or the date at which the 1000th individual was tested (whichever comes first).
