FamilyMart Supplier COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?
There has been no evidence so far that SARS-CoV-2 spreads through fomites. So there is no risk in purchasing ready-to-eat foods from FamilyMart.
Since no FamilyMart employees are affected, there is also no risk in purchasing necessities from their stores.
Just make sure you wear a face mask in public at all times, as they greatly reduce the risk of infection.
You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
