ABSTRACT
An outbreak of 10 COVID-19 cases among food and nutrition department employees occurred before the institution implemented universal masking and physical spacing between staff as part of an overall COVID-19 pandemic response. The outbreak highlighted the importance of early recognition of potential occupational exposure risks, prompt outbreak investigation and implementation of engineering and administrative safety controls. It also served as an opportunity for different departments within the institution to collaborate to prevent future outbreaks.
