Andy Guess and his team of co-researchers received a National Science Foundation COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant for their project, "COVID-19 Information Exposure and Messaging Effects." The project conducts "a multi-wave nationally representative survey of COVID-19 beliefs and attitudes."

According to the research proposal, the survey includes "an embedded experiment as well as oversamples of Americans in highly affected areas and people who have additionally agreed to provide behavioral data on their online information consumption." 

The study is designed to "provide key insights into the accuracy of public beliefs about COVID-19, the efficacy of government and health messaging about the pandemic, the quality of the information people are encountering online about it, and how those quantities change over time."
