Experimental: Hydroxychloroquine Arm
Group A: up to 275 health care workers who choose to take hydroxychloroquine
Hydroxychloroquine- oral administration: Duration: up to 90 days or until meeting study termination criteria.
Loading dose: 600 mg once for the first day Maintenance dose: 200 mg, daily
No Intervention: No Intervention Arm
Group B: Up to 75 health care workers who choose not to take hydroxychloroquine
- SARS-CoV-2 Infection [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Number of health care workers who become infected with SARS-CoV-2 as detected by PCR
- Symptomatic vs. Asymptomatic Infection with SARS-CoV-2 [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Determine the frequency of symptomatic vs. asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections in health care workers during the study via serial PCR testing and symptom surveys
- Occupational Health Exposure [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Assess the role of exposure levels to Covid-19 patients amongst health care workers and its impact of infection rates
- Impact of Hydroxychloroquine use on Need for Hospitalization with SARS-CoV-2 Infection [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Will assess the severity of any SARS-CoV-2 infections amongst health care workers taking and not taking hydroxychloroquine. This will include assessments of hospital admissions.
- Impact of Hydroxychloroquine use on Need for ICU Care with SARS-CoV-2 Infection [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Will assess the severity of any SARS-CoV-2 infections amongst health care workers taking and not taking hydroxychloroquine. This will include determination of the need for ICU care.
- Adverse Effect Profile of Hydroxychloroquine [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Will assess the adverse effect profile of the study drug via serial surveys
- Seroconversion Following SARS-CoV-2 Infection [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Will collect monthly blood samples for serological analysis
- Metagenomic Next Generation Sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 Isolates [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Will perform mNGS on any recovered SARS-CoV-2 isolates from subjects to identify the genomic lineage of the virus and to compare this with SARS-CoV-2 genomes circulating in the hospital system, the community and nationally. This may provide evidence as to the source of the infection (e.g. a hospital-based infection vs. a community infection vs. a travel-associated infection out of state).
