NM closes Walmart Store after 4 employees test positive -

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Four employees of a Las Cruces Walmart have tested positive for COVID-19 over the past three weeks. The Occupational Health and Safety Bureau of the New Mexico Environment Department posted a notice of imminent and substantial endangerment to employees and the public at the Walmart Saturday morning.

The store, located at 3331 Rinconada Boulevard which employs over 400 people must close immediately under the order. Walmart stated they do not require employees who test positive to self-quarantine for 14 days. They also don’t notify individuals who came into close personal contact with the employees to get tested.

NMED is also requiring the store to test all of its workers and thoroughly disinfect the building. The state is urging customers who visited the Las Cruces location since June 22 and any New Mexican who believes they’ve been exposed to seek COVID-19 testing.

2. I'm avoiding the local Walmart. They don't care about their customers, so I don't care about them.

4. I was hoping it was the (cancerous) SE San Mateo one

It is a neighborhood blight.

5. Las Cruces seems to be a hot spot right now. 1,000 cases in a city of 100,000

compared to 3,000 cases in Albuquerque which has around 700,000. Las Crucers has more than double the rate per capita.
