Question for any Employment Law or PI Attorneys


Was reading the WSJ today about several law suits having been filed against employers where the plaintiff died from COVID and attributed it to work conditions. I know congress is trying to pass a bill that would prohibit, or minimize these types of suits because it will be a veritable flood of litigation if not curbed somehow.
My memory of first year torts class is that the first thing you have to show is causation. My question is, how would a plaintiff ever be able to show causation?. The virus is everywhere and is invisible so it would be impossible to show anyone contracted it at the workplace as opposed to at home, grocery store, etc
