Who Should Delay Returning to Work?
Research by the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging disproves the idea that older adults are at greater risk of getting seriously ill or dying of COVID-19. In reality, healthy older people under age 85 are at lower risk than many younger people with underlying conditions. The strategy for the creation of a safer in-person workplace is to adopt both environmental and individual precautions to reduce exposure and infection for all workers, rather than isolate categories of workers based on their individual characteristics.
