Three Walmart stores in Quincy, Avon and Abington, Massachusetts have temporarily closed after a number of employees tested positive for the coronavirus.
"Massachusetts is suffering from a high rate of coronavirus cases, and several of our stores located in some of the state’s hot spots have also been hit hard by the pandemic," Walmart said in a statement to FOX Business. "It may be impossible to track the source of anyone's infection, especially in some of these communities that have felt the devastating impact of the virus. That's why we are working in partnership with local health officials and are taking aggressive steps to help ensure the safety of our associates and customers."
Walmart says it has temporarily closed the stores to conduct employee coronavirus testing and for "additional cleaning and third-party sanitizing." According to the company, store associates that have tested positive are using paid leave options as they recover.
