16 March 2020: GRACE study recruitment ceased to minimise the risks of COVID-19 transmission. To March 2020, 279 participants had enrolled in the study across 5 residential aged-care facilities. Early stages of participant and facility data cleaning and analysis have begun, and all clinical samples have been processed. We are pleased to say that analysis is on schedule, despite our laboratories having to substantially changes working practices between March and June. We would like to thank all involved in the GRACE study and look forward to providing more study updates in the future.​
