“Then, on Thursday, she told me her mom got tested positive for COVID,” Hui said. “Then, we got everybody on board and tested. She spread it to two of my employees so far and now they’re all off and isolating. Everybody that she was in contact with is still currently off and self-monitoring.”

Hui said both of the staff members were office staff and that the staff do not deal with the public.

Hui said the situation has negatively impacted staffing levels. As of Monday, six of 30 staff were currently off, due to the COVID case.

Meanwhile, Hui said the location remains open with strict cleaning and other safety protocols continuing.
