Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) has conducted a large staff testing programme for Covid-19. Staff were tested using a combination of antibody and PCR tests looking for previous and current infection with the virus that causes Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2). These results were stored in the electronic healthcare records of each staff member.
Staff provided details of potential risk factors for Covid-19 which were stored in an infection prevention and control database.
We propose to analyse the results of diagnostic tests from staff together with information provided by staff to infection control to look for risk factors for Covid-19. This study aims to work out ways to better protect staff in future.
