  • Amazon on Thursday said that 19,816 Amazon and Whole Foods Market frontline employees across the U.S. have tested positive or are presumed positive for COVID-19.

  • In an emailed statement, the United Food and Commercial Workers International union slammed the outcome and called for “action by federal regulators and a full Congressional investigation.”
