Employee at San Jose’s Largest Dispensary Tests Positive for COVID-19

San Jose’s largest cannabis dispensary reopened Thursday after undergoing a deep cleaning to eradicate any traces of SARS-CoV-19. The precautions were taken after one of the store’s security guards tested positive for virus.

“Caliva executives informed employees on Wednesday that the guard had received positive test results for the virus after feeling mild symptoms for a few days. The company released an official statement to its customers on Thursday afternoon after an inquiry from this news organization earlier in the day,” The Mercury News reports.

“The security guard has not been in the Caliva facility at 1695 S 7th Street since May 22 but did work 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday of last week.
