JUST IN: Trader Joe’s in Reston is Closed after Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

Trader Joe’s in Reston has temporarily closed for precautionary sanitation due to coronavirus concerns, the grocery store’s manager told Reston Now.

The manager stated that the store will be closed until further notice in order for personnel to conduct deep cleaning of the entire Reston location.

An employee, who last present at the store on April 6, tested positive for the virus

Here’s more from the company:

At Trader Joe’s, there is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our Crew Members and customers. We believe in being proactive and transparent in addressing issues, and we value information and clear communication. With this in mind, we have temporarily closed some stores related to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, including for additional precautionary cleaning and sanitization. We have made sure all Crew Members at the respective locations have been informed and understand the steps to take to best safeguard the health of their communities. While a store is closed, Trader Joe’s pays all Crew Members for their scheduled shifts.

It is unclear when the business will reopen, but the move is expected to be temporary. The business is located at 11958 Killingsworth Avenue.

“We should be open soon,” the manager said.
