Brodheadsville ShopRite worker has coronavirus

ShopRite of Brodheadsville posted that one of its workers has tested positive for coronavirus.

“You should know that ShopRite is prepared and has implemented the Centers for Disease Control recommended protocols to reduce the spread of the virus,” the store posted on its Facebook page Wednesday afternoon.

The precautions include:

• Making sure the diagnosed associate is no longer in the workplace

• Asking colleagues who may have been in close contact with that person to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days

• Implementing deep cleaning procedures including sanitizing all workspaces used by the associate and common areas.

• Taking extra steps to deep clean and sanitize food contact surfaces and high-touch areas throughout all our stores while promoting social distancing and putting up Plexiglas shields to provide a measure of protection to our associates and customers.

“It’s important that you know we remain committed to transparency and we think sharing this information with you is the right thing to do. We also feel it’s important to protect the privacy of our hardworking colleagues; should we learn of additional associates who have been affected, we’ll continue to implement the CDC protocols,” the store said.

“For nearly 75 years, ShopRite has played an important role during times of crisis and, once again, we see our customers – many of whom are also our friends and neighbors – turning to us for the food and supplies they need. While we can’t predict the evolution of this unpredictable challenge that Brodheadsville is facing, please know we are doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of our associates and customers while continuing to serve the community we all call home.”
