Abstract

This study about Factors that delay return to work of COVID-19 positive health care workers at King Saud medical city Riyadh Saudi Arabia.2020

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of RNA viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV).

The aim of this study is to determine the factors that delay return to return to work among COVID-19 positive HCPs also to study the relationship of the associated risk factors and the delay in return to work among positive COVID-19 HCPs and to minimize the delay in return to work among COVID-19 positive HCPs which will maintain staffing levels to provide adequate care to all patients.

Health care professional is defined as all staff in the health care facility involved in the provision of care for a COVID-19 infected patient, including those who have been present in the same area as the patient, as well as those who may not have provided direct care to the patient, but who have had contact with the patient’s body fluids, potentially contaminated items or environmental surfaces.

Sampling method: The design of the sampling for this study will be Stratified Random Sampling (StRS) cross section study.
