ABSTRACT

We assessed SARS-CoV-2 transmission between patients in shared rooms in an academic hospital between September 2020-April 2021. 11,290 patients were admitted to shared rooms, of whom 25 tested positive. Among 31 exposed roommates, 12 (39%) tested positive within 14 days. Transmission was associated with PCR cycle thresholds ≤21.
