A study administered by testing firm Curative showed construction workers have the highest COVID-19 positivity rates for asymptomatic cases across all occupations. In examining the results of more than 730,000 tests, the study found construction workers showed a positivity rate of 5.7 percent for individuals without symptoms. Food service workers were next at 3.8 percent. For cases with symptoms, construction workers were 10.1 percent, second only to corrections staff at 12.5 percent. Several other recent studies have also shown construction workers to be among the leading demographics for positive coronavirus tests. (Source)
