An Amazon employee at its Ruskin warehouse has tested positive for COVID-19.
Amazon officials announced that they have brought employees at the site in Ruskin up to speed, alerting workers who had close contact with the person who tested positive. For those employees who have been asked not to self-quarantine for 14 days (if they are employees who had contact with this individual), Amazon will be compensating them for their time at home.
Amazon handed out a letter to employees at the Ruskin facility and explained that the person who tested positive for COVID-19 has not been in the building since March 23 and is staying at home.
