An associate at ShopRite of Cheltenham Square has reported symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and we think it’s important to share this information with our customers. You should know that ShopRite is prepared and we have implemented deep cleaning procedures that follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended protocols, as well as our own enhanced environmental cleaning and disinfecting guidelines. Additionally, we have taken the following steps:

· The associate will not return to work until cleared by a healthcare professional to do so;
· We have notified any colleagues who may have been in close contact for a prolonged period of time, and are requiring them to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.
