We report on Covid-19 infection risk amongst healthcare workers exposed to a patient diagnosed with Covid-19 on day 13 of hospitalization. There were 44 healthcare workers exposed to the patient before contact and droplet precautions were implemented: of these, 2/44 (5%) developed Covid-19 potentially attributable to the exposure.
