Danvers meat market closes after workers test positive for COVID-19 (May 26)

The McKinnon’s Market & Super Butcher Shop in Danvers will remain closed after Memorial Day due to several employees testing positive for the coronavirus, store officials announced in a Facebook post Monday. 

“The closure will allow us to have all employees tested and cleared to work, and allow us to have the store professionally sanitized, and then deep cleaned,” the market wrote. “These proactive measures, being taken in cooperation with the Danvers Board of Health, is in the best interest of all employees and the public that shops our store.”

Store officials did not specify how many workers have tested positive. 

The meat market, at 73 Holten St., will remain shuttered through Tuesday, but hopes to reopen by Wednesday. 

“Once back open, all employees who arrive to work will have their temperature checked, and we’ll be monitoring for any symptoms each day,” officials said. “We are making sure all employees are informed and understand the steps to take to best safeguard their own health and the health of our community. Thank You to everyone for their understanding.”
