Description:Seroprevalence of antibodies to influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus among 193 emergency department health care personnel was similar among 147 non-health care personnel (odds ratio 1.4, 95% CI 0.8-2.4). Working in an acute care setting did not substantially increase risk for virus infection above risk conferred by community-based exposures.
