CDC  Quantifying Contact Rates and Mixing Patterns in Workers in Non-healthcare Work Settings in the United States and Modeling the Effect of Workplace Social Distancing Measures in Reducing Influenza Transmission

The purpose of this project is to conduct research that describes individual social contact and mixing patterns in workers in non-healthcare work settings in the United States. The goal is to have a better estimate of social contacts in work places to support the development of prevention and control strategies for reducing or slowing the transmission of pandemic influenza.
