LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - As growing cases of COVID19 continue to rise in Texas, here in Laredo major retailers have taken their own approach on notifying the public on any positive cases

Major retailers like Walmart tell KGNS any confirmation regarding COVID-19 cases within their stores will need to come from the local health department.

They assure the public they have taken all measures necessary to ensure the well-being of those inside their stores.

However for Texas retail giant HEB, they have taken another approach in informing their customers on cases.

The company makes any announcement confirming case on their store’s website.

For example, on Monday, an employee at a Laredo H-E-B tested positive for the coronavirus.

The case was reported at the H-E-B located at 7811 McPherson Road, saying the person was last in the store on Tuesday, June 16th.

All directly affected employees at the location have been notified and the store has been deep cleaned and sanitized multiple times since then.

They go on to say that they continue to enforce proper social distancing practices, strict sanitation, and require the use of masks or facial coverings by all their employees and vendors.

H-E-B requests that all customers wear masks or facial coverings while shopping inside the stores.
