A Kwik Shop in Council Bluffs that closed Sunday after a worker tested positive for COVID-19 will reopen in the next few days, the company said Monday.

After a worker at the Kwik Shop at 3632 Avenue G tested positive, the store was closed at noon Sunday so it could be cleaned and sanitized by an industrial cleaning crew, a spokeswoman for the company said Monday.

A prepared statement from Kwik Shop said, "We are taking all appropriate steps following guidance from local health officials. The store will reopen in the next few days. We are grateful to all our customers for their patience and understanding during this time."

All workers in the store have been contacted and advised to follow guidelines from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the company said.

The Kwik Shop at 72nd and Q Streets in Ralston closed temporarily on Oct. 25 after an employee there tested positive for COVID-19.

The store reopened Oct. 28 after it was cleaned.
