Those who render help for the elderly, are particularly at risk because they work with populations that are more vulnerable to COVID-19. But not only the employees health at risk daily. Before the closing of the schools the teachers worked face-to-face with students, and service workers, including cashiers and fast food employees also regularly expose themselves to potential infections.
