“In an abundance of caution, the store was closed on Thursday, June 11, and will remain closed until Thursday, June 25,” Alamo Lumber said in a prepared statement. “This will allow all team members to quarantine and be tested again prior to returning to work.”

“In addition, deep cleaning will be completed on the store before reopening,” the company said.
