EUGENE, Ore.-- In an effort to get a better understanding of the prevalence of the virus here in Eugene, trace-testers went door to door this weekend testing people for COVID-19.

Each team is made up of a representative from Oregon State University and The University of Oregon. They're hoping to get samples from 600 people in the process. It's free and completely voluntary.

If you take part, you swab your own nose, while the tracers wait outside.

"We're all just here to spread awareness and to try to do our part in the whole pandemic. I'm excited to kind of join forces with Eugene, which we're usually kind of rivals with and just build a little sense of community within it," said Julianne Morieale, OSU student. 

The teams visited 30 neighborhoods Saturday and they plan to do the same Sunday. Team members are collecting waste water samples in Eugene and Springfield this weekend, too.
