The workers must be people who cannot perform work duties remotely.

The study is investigating whether commonly used oral and nasal antiseptic, along with masks and hand hygiene, can help prevent COVID-19 infections.

Those who could enroll include police officers, firefighters, grocery store workers, restaurant staff, mail carriers and more. So far, 75 participants are enrolled. It is a 10-week trial for each person.
