We want to inform you that a Co-op cashier tested positive for COVID-19. They were last at work on Saturday, August 21, and noticed a symptom consistent with the signs: loss of sense of smell. We typically sanitize each register area at the end of every shift, so all safety protocols were enforced. The staff member is quarantining at home and all close contacts have been informed and are also being tested prior to return to work. We are greatly relieved that all were vaccinated.
We are in touch with the Department of Health, and are making sure that all employees have all the information they need for testing, vaccination, and quarantine protocols.
Safety of our staff, our Shareholders, and our community continues to be our greatest priority. We have recently reinstituted a mask mandate in the store. Please abide by our mask requirement, wash your hands frequently, and consider avoiding large group gatherings to keep our community safe.
