Infectivity of Healthcare Workers Diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 Infection Approximately 2 weeks after Onset of Symptoms: a Cross-Sectional Study

We performed viral culture of respiratory specimens in 118 SARS-CoV-2 infected healthcare workers (HCW), approximately 2 weeks after symptom onset. Only one HCW (0.8%) had a positive culture. No factors for prolonged viral shedding were identified. Infectivity is resolved in nearly all HCWs approximately 2 weeks after symptom onset.
