Zeeb, Marius; Weissberg, Dana; Rampini, Silvana K; Müller, Rouven; Scheier, Thomas; Zingg, Walter; Kouyos, Roger D; Wolfensberger, Aline (2022). Identifying Contact Risks for SARS-CoV-2 Transmission to Healthcare Workers during Outbreak on COVID-19 Ward. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 28(10):2134-2137.

Abstract

We assessed the risk for different exposures to SARS-CoV-2 during a COVID-19 outbreak among healthcare workers on a hospital ward in late 2020. We found working with isolated COVID-19 patients did not increase the risk of COVID-19 among workers, but working shifts with presymptomatic healthcare coworkers did.
