An Illinois warehouse was cited by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration for alleged violations of the general customs clause after 23 workers came down with COVID-19 several days after gathering at a facility's brew room for lunch.
OSHA investigators claimed that several workers at Midwest Warehouse and Distribution Systems Inc. in Naperville, Illinois, around October 27, 2020 – a few days after lunch – began reporting that they had tested positive for coronavirus, according to a statement released by OSHA Tuesday.
By November 9, 2020, 23 workers tested positive, including one who died on November 4 due to COVID-19 complications, and investigators claimed that the company failed to take measures to identify, inform, isolate and quarantine potentially exposed employees when they first received reports of coronavirus cases.
