New Jersey Amazon warehouse closed after employees test positive for COVID-19
The Amazon warehouse in Robbinsville is closed after employees there tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a spokesperson for the company, the in-house testing program discovered “an increase in asymptomatic cases.”
“Through our in-house COVID-19 testing program, we detected an increase in the number of asymptomatic positive cases at our PNE5 facility in northern New Jersey and have proactively closed the site until Dec. 26 out of an abundance of caution," says Amazon spokesperson Leah Seay. "This is exactly why we built the program—to identify asymptomatic cases and ensure that we can take swift action to prevent spread. All employees will be paid for the shifts that they’ll miss.”
