HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Hackettstown Wawa shut down Thursday, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, according to Wawa spokesperson Jennifer Wolf.
The employee recently worked in the outside fuel court of the store located at 299 Mountain Ave, Wolf said.
Wawa took immediate action and closed the store to have it professionally deep cleaned and disinfected, Wolf said.
The store will reopen as soon as possible with associates from neighboring stores, if needed, Wolf said.
“We are working with the local Department of Health regarding notifications to anyone who may have had close contact with the associate, Wolf said.
“As always, the health and safety of our customers and associates is a top priority. We will do everything we can to support our associate, including providing paid time off, and take all necessary steps to monitor, safeguard and protect all our associates and customers,” Wolf said.
