The statement reads: “All employees who came into contact with the affected employee were notified and sent home to self-quarantine for 14 days.”

It added, “After learning of the employee’s situation, the store closed early on 4/12/2020 and promptly underwent a deep cleaning and disinfection by a third-party professional service.”

A representative at the market told NextShark: “99 Ranch Market is cooperating with all health officials to ensure that any potential infection is contained.”

“We are continuing to implement precautionary measures to keep our employees and customers safe,” they added.
