CNN Business: Elizabeth Warren, other Massachusetts Democrats probe Walmart on store with more than 80 coronavirus cases

Senator Elizabeth Warren and other Democratic members of Massachusetts' congressional delegation are pressing Walmart on its handling of a store in the state where 81 workers tested positive for the coronavirus and another location where an employee died.

"We are writing to express serious concern about your company's failure to keep Walmart employees in Massachusetts safe amidst the coronavirus," 11 House and Senate Democrats wrote to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon Thursday in a letter obtained by CNN Business.

Worcester officials ordered a Walmart (WMT) store to shut down last week after 23 employees tested positive for the virus, according to the local health department.
