Great article documenting how Covid-19 spread in my area---- this is what I recall from TV news reports,  local Philly papers, Montgomery County Health department briefings.

Cardiologist> patients > patients family member > grandparent- employed at prison > prison outbreak. Sixty-four people — 22 inmates and 42 staff — contracted coronavirus at the Delaware County prison,

Cardiologist > police officer who answered EMS call at doctors home>fellow officer  etc.   Karen

An interesting read.

It does a good job putting a real life face on transmission.

Part of the community outbreak cases in the interior of Alaska were related to care at a stand alone medical and physical therapy office/business. Contact tracing led to identifying and closing that source of infection.
