An Update on COVID-19: Information about Green Lake Aurora PCC

March 11, 2020

Today we learned that a staff member in our Green Lake Aurora store tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Upon learning of the result, we moved quickly to notify our staff, temporarily close the store, and implement a deep clean of the entire store. We are following all recommended guidelines from public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and city, county, and state public health departments.

The staff member in question works only at the Green Lake Aurora PCC store at 7504 Aurora Avenue North. They last worked on Sunday, March 8, 2020.

Guidance from public health authorities is that individuals who were in “close contact” with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 should self-quarantine. PCC has identified other staff who may have been in “close contact” with the affected staff person and is supporting these additional staff as they self-quarantine. Our co-op has a generous sick and vacation policy, and we are working with employees on a case-by-case basis to ensure they have the support they need.

Out of an abundance of caution, the kitchen and deli of the Green Lake Aurora PCC store will be closed for 14 days, through March 26, 2020. While this staff member worked in the kitchen and is unlikely to have had “close contact” with any shopper, if you think you may have come into “close contact” with a member of our deli staff, you may contact us at healthinfo@pccmarkets.com.

The Green Lake Aurora PCC store will reopen on Friday, March 13, 2020 and be staffed by employees who did not come into “close contact” with the employee who tested positive for COVID-19.

Across our co-op, we have asked any staff exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness or fever to stay home, contact our HR department, and notify their physician.

Our co-op prides itself on its cleanliness and food safety standards, and we are taking multiple steps to best serve you, care for our staff, and be a responsible member of our community. We have implemented rigorous cleaning practices throughout all of our stores, including more frequent cleanings of high-impact/high-touch areas across our entire co-op. To learn more about the steps we are taking, please see our recent statement.
