The Whitey’s Ice Cream’s store in East Moline is closing temporarily after an employee tested positive for the coronavirus.
In a Wednesday Facebook post, the company said that it will close down the location for a few days to deep clean the store and give employees time to get tested.
The employee has not worked at the store since before the weekend and no other employees are showing symptoms, the company said. All other locations will remain open.
“Please know we are doing everything we can to keep our employees safe and healthy while at work and we greatly appreciate your understand and support during these strange times,” the company said in the post.
