Three WinCo employees have tested positive for COVID-19, the Oregonian reports. Two employees at the Tigard store have tested positive, as well as one employee at the Oregon City location.

According to the Oregonian, the store learned about the positive tests on Saturday, and the employees have been in self-quarantine for a week at the least. The company told the paper that the stores have been deep-cleaned since the employees went home.

They’re not the only Portland area grocery workers who have contracted the virus: Last month, an employee of the Northeast Portland Fred Meyer tested positive for the novel coronavirus, joining the 233 confirmed cases in Multnomah County and the 259 confirmed cases in Washington county. Eater Portland has reached out to WinCo for comment; this story will be updated as information becomes available.
