Lots of conflicting info. She is not necessarily safe being a lab tech. The US army recommends that clinical laboratory personnel are “at significant risk for exposure” and should employ a bio-safety cabinet when available, with barrier and respiratory precautions when handling specimens. USAMRID handbook. I read the lab workers were not using any special protection when handling the specimens. Just the normal level a hospital has against blood born pathogens.
