Through contact tracing, an Infusion team member working in the Maite Pay-Less location tested for COVID-19 on Thursday, August 20, 2020, and received a positive result on Friday, August 21, 2020.

The team member did not return to work since being tested. As a precaution, the following safety measures are being implemented:

• The team member’s interaction was limited to the Infusion area and did not have close contact with Maite Pay-Less employees. However, in the spirit of partnership and to exercise caution, Maite Pay-Less closed temporarily at 4:00 PM, Friday, August 21, for deep cleaning. More detailed sanitizing will be done within and around Infusion’s cafe corner. Pay-Less Supermarket in Maite will reopen for Golden Hour at 5:00 AM, and 6:00 AM for regular store hours, Saturday, August 22. The Infusion corner in Pay-Less Maite will remain closed until further notice.

• All Infusion employees working in this location, including support staff who were in contact with the team member, will be tested and are to abide by the required quarantine policy.

As done in March, Infusion respects any request from anyone on its team who chooses to stay home during the pandemic. Their jobs are secure, but it impacts the company’s ability to provide service throughout our cafes. Having the Maite team out on quarantine will further affect Infusion coverage levels.

“We will do our best to maintain consistency, but ask for your patience as hours of operation and store openings are expected to change. On-going updates are posted on our Facebook and Instagram sites @infusionguam. The health and safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, and we remain committed to providing a safe environment for everyone.

Let’s be strong and continue to support each other as we charter through these unprecedented times,” the company stated in a news release.
