Walgreens issued a statement Saturday, March 28, detailing the reason for the temporary closure of its store at 410 Chicago Road (Route 34) at Route 71, in Oswego.
"We are committed to providing a safe environment for our customers and team members," the statement read. "We were notified that a team member who works in our Oswego location is being evaluated for COVID-19."
The individual has not been in a store since Saturday, March 21. No information was provided on the status of the employee.
"In accordance with our established protocols, CDC (Center for Disease Control) guidance and out of an abundance of caution, the store was temporarily closed for cleaning in order to disinfect the premises and has since reopened.
