Marble Falls H-E-B employee tests positive for COVID-19


An H-E-B employee, or partner, from Store 735, 1503 Farm Road 1431, Marble Falls, was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 last month, but did not require the store to close as a result, company officials said last week in a press release.

The partner had last worked or was last present in the store on Dec. 21, and “all directly affected partners at the location have been notified and the store has been deep cleaned and sanitized multiple times since then,” according to H-E-B corporate communications in their Dec. 28 press release.

“At our stores, we continue to enforce proper social distancing practices, strict sanitation and require the use of masks or facial covering by all our partners and vendors in customer facing and close contact positions,” the company said in its press release.

“The State of Texas requires customers to wear mask or facial covering while shopping in our stores.

“In cities and counties with local Health and Safety Plan ordinances, mask use by customers is required. In areas that do not have a local ordinance in place, H-E-B stores will require the use of masks or facial coverings. Social distancing, wearing masks, proper hand washing, and sanitization are all things we do to help keep Texas healthy.”

The Marble Falls H-E-B store remains open at this time, with hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
