905 staffers at the Mayo Clinic

Infected with Covid.

To be fair:-

>>During a press call on Tuesday, Amy Williams, MD, dean of clinical practice at Mayo, said 93% of the employees who got sick were infected in the community.

"It shows you how easy it is to get COVID-19 in the Midwest," Williams said during the call.

The majority of those who contracted COVID on the job did so while eating in the break room with their masks off, Williams added. Break rooms have been particularly perilous for hospital staff, as infections at other hospitals have been traced to them. The small rooms may be poorly ventilated and set an easy stage for spread.

The infections have taken a toll on staffing levels at Mayo Clinic's Midwest facilities, which currently have a total of 1,500 staff on work restrictions because of a COVID-19 diagnosis or a potential exposure, Plumbo said.<<

However these are people using protective gear, we have to assume. If they get it, what chance do you have.

Again, have they got it, and got symptoms, or have they just tested posative?

You cannot run, you cannot hide. Lock it away if you like, it is out there waiting for you.
