摘要Large numbers of healthcare workers have acquiredcoronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the workplace [1]. SARS-CoV-2 is easily transmissible as each person with COVID-19infects approximately 2.2 close contacts, and asymptomatictransmission has been reported [2, 3]. SARS-CoV-2 survivesin aerosols and on surfaces from hours to days, respectively[4]. Therefore, we believe non-clinical areas are potentiallyhigh-risk for transmission between healthcare workers, andoften neglected by infection prevention and controlprotocols. To alert others to this risk and how it may bereduced, we describe our non-clinical workplace infectionprevention and control measures that have been modifiedfrom those originally developed during the 2003 severeacute respiratory syndrome epidemic [5].
