BOCA RATON, FL ( — A deli worker at the Publix located at US 441 and Clint Moore Road — known as the Publix at the “Reserve” shoppes, tested positive for COVID-19.

A store manager is confirming to concerned customers that the employee and her co-workers have been quarantined ever since the store learned of the positive test. It is unclear when the test results were returned.

All Deli workers, according to the manager, have been replaced with Publix employees from other stores.

The manager — who was exceptionally forthcoming — said that the entire store was sanitized and continues to be sanitized around the clock.

The current health condition of the infected employee is unclear. It is also unclear if other workers have been tested, or if Publix is mandating tests for all workers.

A call and email to the media relations team at Publix was not returned to
