ShopRite announced this weekend that an employee at their Manahawkin store has tested positive for COVID-19.

ShopRite said the diagnosed associate is no longer in the workplace and they are asking colleagues who may have been in close contact with that person to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.

The store has also implementing deep cleaning procedures including sanitizing all workspaces used by the associate and common areas and is taking extra steps to deep clean and sanitize food contact surfaces and high-touch areas throughout all ShopRite stores while promoting social distancing.

Employees working in at least 24 different ShopRites in New Jersey have been sickened with the coronavirus, the company says. No employees at their stores in Atlantic, Cape May, or Cumberland counties have been affected.

ShopRite has put up Plexiglas shields at all of their stores to provide a measure of protection to associates and customers.
