Staten Worker Warehouses’s Amazon Worker Tested Positive For COVID-19

Employees at Bullitt Co. Amazon Fulfillment Center test positive for COVID-19

A firm speaker informed The Washington Post that Amazon was "supporting the individuals" that are influenced, "following guidelines from local officials, and are taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of all the employees at our sites".

"We've placed purchase orders for millions of face masks we want to give to our employees and contractors who can not work from home, but very few of those orders have been filled".

Local media reported that there are now seven cases across Amazon's United States warehouses in New York, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Connecticut, and Oklahoma have had workers test positive for Covid-19.

According to the CDC, the coronavirus primarily spreads via "respiratory droplets" when people cough or sneeze.

Local reports reveal at least seven Amazon warehouses in the USA now have confirmed cases of Covid-19.

Inc. has temporarily closed a warehouse in Shepherdsville, Ky., after multiple workers tested positive for Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. "As the pandemic unfolds, the demand for home-delivery is increasing, leading to near peak-level volume across the network". Additionally, more warehouse workers may choose to stay home to avoid contracting the disease.

It can also be a good sign for doctors and nurses to know early on. "I didn't even think it could be related ", he says . In my practice, patients all around me are reporting this. "Therefore, there are lots of carriers around".

In Texas, the unnamed employee works on the management team for an Amazon delivery station based in the city of Katy, the company told PCMag in a statement. The company is already alerting visitors to its website of longer delivery times and encouraging customers to choose hasty delivery if their needs are not urgent.

"We have increased the frequency and intensity of cleaning at all sites, including regular sanitization of door handles, handrails, touch screens, scanners, and other frequently touched areas", the company said. Delivery drivers received detailed instructions to clean their vehicles and equipment.

Amazon also has made changes at its work sites in accordance with social distancing, including eliminating standup meetings during shifts and staggering start and break times.

Hourly pay and overtime pay have been increased.

The contaminated employee hadn't been on the success center in a few weeks, Smalls stated - however, at a facility with greater than 2,500 full-time workers, Smalls feared that an impending outbreak is inevitable.
