ST. LOUIS — An employee at Procter & Gamble Co.'s St. Louis plant has tested positive for coronavirus, the Cincinnati company confirmed Tuesday.
Procter said while awaiting test results, it implemented contact tracing and sanitization of all areas. Specific areas were closed but the plant, at 169 E. Grand Ave., was not shut down and overall operations were not impacted, it said.
"We're constantly evaluating and updating the robust measures already in place to help our employees stay safe at work," Procter & Gamble said in a statement. "This includes temperature scans, shift rotations, queuing avoidance and physical distancing where possible. We also perform comprehensive, methodical cleaning of all production areas, including regular sanitization and surface disinfection that exceeds the most rigorous health authority standards."
A 2010 Business Journal report said Procter makes Cascade, Mr. Clean, Febreze and Swiffer cleaning products at the complex.
