Lancaster Turkey Hill Minit Markets employee has tested positive for coronavirus


LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — A Turkey Hill Minit Markets employee in Lancaster has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement from the company, they said they closed the store at 410 East Chestnut Street on Wednesday after learning a team member there has coronavirus.

On Friday ABC 27 News saw cleaning crews in hazmat type suits coming in and out of the store.

Geoffrey Wolpert also saw the cleaning efforts taking place at the store.

“At first when I saw that I kind of assumed the worst,” Wolpert told ABC 27 News. “I assumed somebody had either been in there with the coronavirus or somebody had come in contact with that store in some way.”

Wolpert actually usually works across the street from the Turkey Hill on East Chestnut Street and is regular customer at the store. He said he now is concerned on what he should do.

“I’m just afraid of spreading it to people if I have it,” Wolpert said. I’m worried for my parents, for my friends.”

All team members who work at the store have been contacted and told to follow the Center for Disease Control about what they should do after coming in contact with someone who has COVID-19.

The company is also urging any customers who were in the store to do the same.
