20 professions with the highest risk of coronavirus infection

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends social distance as the most effective way to protect yourself from coronavirus infection, but this is not possible for some workers. Many professionals require personal contact in order to perform work duties, which puts these people at high risk of contracting coronavirus and other infections, writes GOBankingRates.

Overall, healthcare workers are at greatest risk - they have face-to-face contact every working day, and they often meet people with coronavirus. Those who care for the elderly are particularly at risk as they work with the population most vulnerable to COVID-19. But it's not just healthcare workers who take risks every day. Before schools closed, teachers worked face-to-face with schoolchildren, and service workers, including cashiers and fast food workers, also regularly expose themselves to potential infections.

The project used data based on three factors: (1) how much the work requires contact with other people; (2) how much work requires performing tasks in close proximity to people; and (3) how often the job requires exposure to hazardous conditions. Risk scores ranged from 0 to 100, with 100 being the highest risk.

Obviously, some jobs pose more risks than others. Here are the 20 most dangerous professions most often at risk of contracting coronavirus. The list also includes teachers, pharmacists, kindergarten teachers, penitentiary workers, beauticians, hairdressers, firefighters and more - a complete list here.
