An employee at a local Stop & Shop warehouse has tested positive for COVID-19.

A Stop & Shop spokesperson has confirmed to Fall River Reporter that there has been one associate at their Freetown distribution warehouse, located at 136 South Main Street, that has tested positive for COVID-19.

The warehouse has gone through a cleaning and employees who have come in close contact have been quarantined, according to the spokesperson.

“We have conducted an extensive deep cleaning of the entire warehouse and every surface possible in strict accordance with guidelines from the CDC and state and local public health officials. The associate will not return to work until cleared by public health officials as no longer contagious for COVID-19.”

“Out of an abundance of caution, any associates who had been in close contact with the affected associate have been asked to self-quarantine, and we are continuing to insist that any other associates who feel sick at any time stay home.”

It has been confirmed that there are currently no cases of COVID-19 at Stop & Shop locations in Fall River.

“Nothing is more important to us than the health of our customers and associates, and we are continuing to implement extensive measures to help ensure all our stores and facilities are safe. Grocery stores are viewed as an essential service at this time, and all our associates in the warehouse and stores continue to go above and beyond to serve our communities.”

    This article is a bunch of bull. The company does not make employees self quarantine. There was 1 death that was because they did not have people quarantine and an associate’s mother caught it and passed. This company is all about the $$$, they don’t “scrub” the place clean. It’s all a farce.
