BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — More than 100 hospital employees in Boston have tested positive for COVID-19.
Those employees work at Brigham and Women's Hospital (45), Massachusetts General Hospital (41), and Boston Medical Center (15).
"Based on hospital data, our broad implementation of CDC-guided infection control procedures throughout the hospital, and the extent of community spread now ongoing in Massachusetts, it is believed that the vast majority of these individuals did not contract the virus at work," a Mass. General spokesperson told WBZ NewsRadio.
On Wednesday, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced 679 new cases of COVID-19 in the state, along with four more deaths, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 1,838.
