Strongsville Heinen's closed after employee tests positive for coronavirus

Officials say the associate has not worked at the store since Thursday.

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — Heinen's has shut down its Strongsville store for at least the next day after an employee at the location tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to a letter from co-owners Tom and Jeff Heinen, the chain learned of the test results Saturday morning and the associate has not worked at the store since Thursday. The market is now undergoing a "deep cleaning" of the sales and backroom areas.

"In all of our stores, we will continue to follow our already stringent sanitation practices and have increased the frequency of our cleaning to continue to protect the safety of our customers and associates," the Heinen brothers wrote.

Heinen's will let customers know on its website and social media platforms once the store is reopened.
