Publix supermakets have confirmed that associates from at least 21 stores across the Orlando area have tested positive for COVID-19, including the St. Cloud stores on South Narcoossee Road (near 192) and Canoe Creek Road (Cross Creek Village).

The grocery chain says all of their employees who test positive are getting 14 days’ paid leave so they can quarantine. The company also said it will continue to enforce protective measures in their stores.

“The testing and reporting of cases by health departments varies widely state-by-state. As a result, we cannot fully and accurately report cases in real time, but we have been, and will continue to be, keenly focused on intensive, ongoing protective measures in all our stores,” Publix spokesperson Maria Brous said.
