LRW Partners with USC and LA County on Coronavirus Antibody Research

LRW Group today announced a coordinated effort with USC’s Price School of Public Policy and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to recruit and test 1,000 Los Angeles residents to discover the true spread of COVID-19 across the county. The blood tests, known as serological testing, will determine if the participants now carry or have ever carried the virus. The results of these tests expect to shed new light on just how widespread the virus is across the county, and are a critical touchpoint to determine when residents can return to “normal life.”
