Walgreens issues statement about temporary Paddock Lake store closing Monday

The Walgreens store in Paddock Lake was closed for a while Monday, in reaction to notification that an employee there was being evaluated for COVID-19.

Here is a statement from Walgreens spokesman Alexandra Brown issued via email to westofthei.com:

Walgreens champions the health and well being of every community in America, and we are committed to providing a safe environment for our team members and customers. Walgreens was recently notified that a team member who works in a Salem, WI store is being evaluated for COVID-19. When notified of a confirmed or presumed positive COVID-19 case, we take actions meeting or exceeding recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, public health officials and other credible sources while following federal, state and local health advisories. Our clinical and safety teams work closely with our field and store leadership to respond accordingly, which may include identifying and contacting individuals who may be at risk in order to self-quarantine or self-monitor their health, as well as cleaning and disinfecting the location or impacted areas of the store. Cleanings may require temporarily closing a store, at which time customers may visit a nearby store location for their prescription needs. We are actively reviewing our policies and procedures as guidelines evolve, and will continue to adjust our safety protocols accordingly to promote the safety and well being of our team members and customers.”
