LOS ANGELES — Health care workers might not be that different from the general population in the factors that determine their risk of getting COVID-19, researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said Wednesday. A study led by Cedars-Sinai shows that health care workers are more likely to have antibodies to COVID-19 in their blood if they are Black or Latino or have hypertension. But it suggests that the community — rather than the workplace — is the more common source of coronavirus exposure. Th...
