New Mexico work safety regulators confirmed Wednesday that they were involved in a “rapid response” effort due to coronavirus exposure at a the Walmart store on Rinconada.
One employee tested positive last week at the store and eleven others identified as close contacts are currently quarantined and being tested. The store was disinfected after the worker who contracted the virus was identified September 4th.
In July, that same store was briefly closed by the NMED after four workers became infected and Walmart’s compliance with state’s virus protocols came under scrutiny for alleged violations. The store remains open following this latest case and officials indicated that Walmart was currently cooperating with the state.
