New York City and its surrounding metro area have emerged as an epicenter of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak worldwide. A recent population survey1 for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) antibodies among those in New York state shows a prevalence of 21.2% in New York City and 16.7% in Long Island. Across the US, up to 11% of reported COVID-19 cases were found to be in health care professionals,2 but the true prevalence of COVID-19 among health care workers is unknown. The aim of the present study is to establish the rate of COVID-19 among health care workers by widespread screening for SARS-CoV-2 exposure.
