(And I think caregivers in nursing homes are healthcare professionals.)

I am all in favor of people doing studies. And I am encouraged by the word "trial" in his comment. It suggests something more vigorous than just giving everyone hydroxychloroquine. Hopefully they are going to collect data but I understand that can be a secondary issue. As I have written in other threads I hope this works, bigly.
I think the doctors, nurses, respiratory techs, etc. who are treating these patients would be considered "front line" especially if they are in the ER or some form of triage.
