Bloomberg: Starbucks Cafe’s Covid Outbreak Spared Employees Who Wore Masks

Bloomberg: Starbucks Cafe’s Covid Outbreak Spared Employees Who Wore Masks. “After a woman with the coronavirus visited a Starbucks cafe north of Seoul [in August], more than two dozen patrons tested positive days later. But the four face mask-wearing employees escaped infection. The Aug. 8 outbreak in the South Korean city of Paju is another example of how rapidly the SARS-CoV-2 virus can spread in confined, indoor spaces — as well as ways to minimize transmission. With health authorities around the world still debating the evidence around face masks, the 27-person cluster linked to the air-conditioned coffee outlet adds more support for their mandatory use to help limit the spread of the Covid-19-causing virus.”
