Aldi’s Germantown Location Closes Due to Positive Covid-19 Tests
After a day of speculation, Aldi’s Germantown location has confirmed their store is temporarily closed due to three employees testing positive for COVID-19.
The store had closed temporarily yesterday, with signs being put up that said the store was closed until further notice. We now have confirmation from Aldi that the reason for the closure is due to positive COVID-19 tests.
The Maryland Department of Health does not require essential businesses (such as Aldi, a grocery store) to disclose positive tests to the public, but Aldi has chosen to be transparent with the public.
Aldi has not given a timeline for the reopening of the store at this time, but notes that a third party has been employed for a deep cleaning of the store.
