Among adults tested for the coronavirus at 11 US healthcare facilities in July, those who were infected were about twice as likely to have dined at a restaurant in the previous 14 days, a US study said.

Otherwise, activity levels were similar in people with or without COVID-19 in other respects such as shopping and social gatherings at home.

“Masks cannot be effectively worn while eating and drinking, whereas shopping and numerous other indoor activities do not preclude mask use,” researchers said in the report in the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
