Manlius, N.Y. - An infected employee at the Tops supermarket in Manlius may have had contact with customers, the county health department announced.
Their public announcement means that there’s a “gap” in their investigation into the infection, with worry that members of the public could have been exposed.
People who visited the 119 West Seneca St. store between these hours may have been exposed:
Thursday, March 26 between 6:00 am and 1:10 pm
Friday, March 27 between 6:00 am and 11:00 am
Some of those hours included times set aside for elderly and vulnerable populations. The store has since been deep-cleaned, the health department said.
Another grocery sote chain has announced they will allow their employees to wear masks.
Wegmans Food Markets stores will now allow employees to wear masks during working hours if they so choose.
Employees who feel more comfortable wearing a mask while working may do so.
Employees are, however, expected to bring in their own masks; they will not be provided with one.
