UMASH/University of Minnesota is studying whether agricultural workers and dairy producers are uniquely resilient to the health and economic effects of COVID-19 by having prior knowledge of biosecurity and infection control related to worker occupational health, safety, and food hygiene. Our outcome aims are to help dairy farms find ways to keep workers as safe and healthy as possible from COVID-19, thereby decreasing the economic impact of a sick workforce on production, as well as the creation of future educational materials for worker safety and occupational health.

Your participation in this study is requested. This will be conducted through a one-time 16-question survey about biosecurity practices and preparedness during the COVID pandemic, done by a phone or video interview. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes. Participation in this study is voluntary and all answers will remain anonymous.

If you are willing to participate or have any questions or concerns, please email myung@umn.edu for further details. Your contact information will not be shared or used outside of this study.
