    Abstract

    As COVID-19 affects healthcare and social care systems around the world, reports of infection among healthcare and social care workers continue to accumulate. These include outbreaks in hospitals, primary care, aged care, disability care, community and home care services, and draw attention to the risks of HSCWs contracting COVID-19 and also subsequently acting as vectors for transmission. Reducing this possibility is a key component of reducing the impact of SARS-CoV-2.
