How risky is it to be a poll worker in the age of COVID-19?

I'd like to be a poll worker this November, but I'd also like to understand how much of a risk it might be. Articles? Data? Decision-making models? Anything?
Poll workers will be equipped with N-95 masks, hand sanitizer, and masking tape. Voters will be...disinclined to wear masks. The lines and voting stations will be inside a single open space with a high ceiling, but little ventilation, and I'm pretty sure that the air-control system hasn't been updated for 20 years. Local compliance with social distancing is not great. I want to be a poll worker. I do not want to get sick. I am looking for guidance on making this decision. What questions should I ask the election judge when they call? Is there advice for poll workers?
