First Monsoon Sampling Cancelled
Hello Project Harvest Participant,
We want to check in with you and provide an update on the First Monsoon sampling.
The safety of you, the Promotoras, and the Project Harvest team is our top priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will NOT be collecting the First Monsoon (June 16, 23, and 30, July 7, 14, and 21) LAB samples. For those who have chosen the Do-it-Yourself (DIY) method, you are still welcome to do your experiment and send us your results, however, your Promotora cannot assist you in-person.
Your Promotora will be contacting you to get your feelings on our decision, if they haven't done so already.
Our next steps are to work with a public health expert to develop approved protocol for future samplings.
