Bioaerosol samples were collected in an airborne infection isolation room, bathroom and anteroom of a ventilated patient with coronavirus disease 2019. Twenty-eight samples were negative for SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid, possibly due to the patient being on a closed-circuit ventilator or the efficiency of the air exchanges in the room.
