MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A representative with Kroger confirmed a second person has tested positive for COVID-19 at the Kroger Distribution Center in Memphis.

Teresa Dickerson, corporate affairs manager for Kroger, says the associate was asked to self-isolate last Friday after the first case was announced.

The associate is reportedly recovering at home.

Dickerson says they believe the two cases are related.

“We will continue aggressively cleaning and sanitizing the facility,” Dickerson said. “Before entering the building, each associate has their temperature checked as we take additional precautions to keep our associates safe.”
