Pregnant women are at risk for COVID-19 infection during the current pandemic. To date, information about the different routes (transplacental, perinatal, and postnatal) and risks of transmission of this disease to newborn infantsis anecdotal and not population-based. Given that SARS-CoV-2 is a respiratory virus, the risk of transplacental transmission might be presumed to be very low to absent. The risk of postnatal transmission is likely to be very high if the newborn is not immediately separated from the mother, and the severity of postnatally acquired disease in the newborn is unknown.The SONPM National Registry will provide population data on dyads of mothers who deliver who test positive for COVID-19 infection between 14 days before through 3 days after delivery, and their infants.

The HERO Registry allows health care workers across the country to share clinical and life experiences so organizers can better understand the perspectives and problems they face on the COVID-19 pandemic front lines. The registry seeks the participation of anyone who works in a setting where people receive health care.Health care workers can participate as much or as little as they like through surveys and clinical trial opportunities. Future studies will help improve understanding of COVID-19 and beyond, generating evidence to help keep health care workers safe and healthy.
