To keep up with the current COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare infrastructure is continually changing and growing at a rapid pace. Protection of our frontline workers is of utmost priority. Here, we describe the measures taken at our tertiary care center for this purpose. A dedicated COVID-19 screening centre was setup for healthcare workers (HCW), run by frontline HCWs themselves. Over the 6 months that this OPD has run, it has catered to hundreds of HCWs, with a small number of staff themselves contracting COVID-19. The individual cases have been enumerated, and the changes implemented from lessons we learnt have been discussed.
