BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — At least three employees at Macy’s in Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall have tested positive for COVID-19. The store remains open.

“These colleagues have not been in in the store since July 21st,” said Macy’s Director of Media Relations Jacqueline King. “We will remain in close contact as these colleagues recover.”


It was not immediately clear in which department or departments the employees worked. While BocaNewsNow.com received multiple contacts on Friday from other workers questioning the company’s handling of the infections in the Boca Raton store, King said all CDC guidelines are being followed.


“The health and safety of our colleagues and customers is always our top priority,” said King. “We have implemented enhanced safety and wellness procedures to help alleviate any potential health concerns, following he Centers for Disease Control’s recommended protocol. This includes enhanced cleaning in heavily trafficked areas and hard surfaces which include entrances, customer service stations, vertical transportation. restrooms and break rooms.”

King said that Macy’s employees are provided with face masks and that health services are available. Employees contacting BocaNewsNow.com claimed that they are being charged for both.

“Macy’s provides our colleagues with face masks to help prevent the spread of the virus and guides daily wellness checks to support a safe working environment. We encourage our colleagues to continue to follow the CDC recommended everyday measures and will remain vigilant and partner with local and state officials along with mall management.”

    1. Hey Darcy! “So what”?

      Go shop there today. Prove that Darwin was right. Go spend a few hours there. Don’t worry about wearing a mask… it’s all just a big anti-Trump hoax anyway.

    1. They probably should close that store until they know if any other staff is positive. Why do you seem so angry at a simple news story? Are you one of those people who thinks masks are ridiculous because you only think of yourself? I bet you are. Did you stop to consider that the rest of the staff are actual people living actual lives? And an actual infected person can not only infect them, but also anyone shopping there? Presumably a person like yourself? If I’m going to go off the reasonable assumption that you’re the type of person who only thinks of themselves, I’d say you probably should want them to close for a bit for your own safety. If you absolutely CANNOT go a week or 4 without shopping at a Macy’s, might I direct you to their website where you can just order whatever it is you so desperately need. Otherwise, there are other Macy’s relatively close to Boca.

      In short, calm yourself Darcy. The story says nothing about them closing.
      I won’t be looking for or getting notifications of replies, so save yourself the effort.
