We learned that an Amy’s employee at our Austinville 78750 store (13265 N HWY 183, Austin, Texas 78750) tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) on June 19, 2020. Upon receiving this news, we acted immediately to notify our team at Austinville 78750. By the time the employee notified us on June 19th, noting contact with an individual with COVID-19 outside of work, we had already contracted a deep clean of the entire store with a local sanitation company, this also includes mandatory regular cleanings of workstations and high touch areas. The last shift this employee worked was Sunday, June 14th at this time our lobby was opened to the public.
Following guidance from public health authorities, Amy’s Ice Creams identified all other team members who had close contact with the affected person and they are currently in self-quarantine until free of symptoms for 14 days or have tested negative for the virus. Testing is being conducted currently. The store is currently closed to the public and will reopen as soon as it is safe for both employees and customers.
We are, and have been, following all recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and city, county, and state public health departments. Any team members experiencing fever or symptoms of respiratory illness are being advised to stay home.
