BIZNOTE: Menashe & Sons Jewelers closed temporarily after COVID-19 diagnosis

Thanks for the tip. Menashe & Sons Jewelers in The Junction has announced via social media that it’s closed until November 9th because of a COVID-19 diagnosis. From the post:

Dear Menashe & Sons customers, friends, family,

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that one of our employees has tested positive for COVID-19. We immediately closed the store and have done a deep clean, and everyone is isolating.

Due to this, we will remain closed until Monday, November 9th so we can take extra precautions and our employees may get tested and self-quarantine at home.

Since this diagnosis, the building has been repeatedly sanitized and disinfected following state and federal guidelines.

We are working with the King County Department of Health to ensure that everything possible is being done to keep you and our employees and families safe.

The safety and wellbeing of our team, their families, and you, who we also consider family, are the utmost importance.

As we reported in July, businesses are not required to disclose COVID-19 cases, so announcements like this are entirely voluntary.

    It’s no wonder considering when I was last there, the woman had her mask under her nose the whole time and several had no mask at all.

    I’m not surprised. When I went in a month or two ago to get a new battery replaced in my watch, nobody inside was wearing a mask as I entered. While I was there, a couple of the folks who worked there put a mask on, or pulled the mask they had hanging around their ears up over their mouth, but not everyone. I didn’t say anything about it to anyone there because I wasn’t interested in conflict. I had my mask on though. When I went back in to pick up my watch a few days later, same thing. Only the person who helped me directly bothered to put their mask on after I entered.

    I appreciate your sharing this information with us and am wishing all the staff well.  The precautions you are taking and the care for your employees , customers and the community at large demonstrated by the actions Menashe & Sons has implemented are consistent with your fine business record and treasured spot in our local community.  Hoping the staff member who tested positive will soon recover and that the news is โ€œnegativeโ€ for others tested.

    Pretty simple. Wear masks and social distance. Period.
