Wawa temporarily closes several stores to sanitize after associates test positive for COVID-19

Wawa says it has recently closed a dozen local stores after a worker in each store tested positive for coronavirus.

Two of the stores remain closed on Sunday.

The Action Cam was at one of the shuttered stores on the 900 block of South Street in South Philadelphia early Sunday morning.

The other store that is still closed is in Old Bridge, New Jersey.

Wawa says after a confirmed positive test, it temporarily closes the store for a professional deep cleaning.

In a statement issued Saturday, Wawa said the following:

Wawa will always remain transparent, especially in times of uncertainty, and we continue to take immediate action to protect our customers and associates. It is our policy and public health guidance to close stores for professional deep cleaning and disinfecting after being notified of an associate with a confirmed case of COVID-19. We are notifying our customers of temporary closures in stores for precautionary cleaning and sanitizing. We will continue to provide more information as we have it, including when the store will re-open.
