Multiple employees at Silver Lake’s busy Whole Foods 365 grocery store have tested positive for the coronavirus, reports the Los Feliz Ledger and others. The Amazon-owned Whole Foods brand confirmed the outbreak to Business Insider, saying that, while they would not confirm the number of reported COVID-19 cases, they are “working closely with our store team members, and are supporting the diagnosed team members who are in quarantine.” The company also said that it will engage in contact tracing, and that it will inform employees of any further positive tests results among staff. The grocery store remains open.
