Health care personnel exposure to a patient with asymptomatic SARS-CoV2 infection during a prolonged surgical intervention.
Am J Infect Control. 2020 08; 48(8):955-957.AJ

Abstract

There is ongoing debate regarding the role of aerosols in the transmission of SARS-CoV2 in the health care environment. Here, we report a case in which multiple operating room health care providers were exposed to a patient with asymptomatic SARS-CoV2 infection during a prolonged orthopedic surgical intervention and had no evidence of COVID-19 during the 14-day post-exposure period.
