As has been mentioned many, many times, masks are more about the people around you than they are about your own protection.

If those people got covid, it's because the people around them likely weren't wearing masks, not because they were or weren't.

Here's the actual study though:

https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6936a5.htm

It does find that 85% of the people who were infected in the study reported wearing masks, but it also finds that those who got covid were twice as likely to have eaten at a restaurant (thus taking their mask off) than those who were not.
