It has been brought to the attention of the City of Benicia that word is spreading on social media of a large number of employees at Raley’s testing positive for COVID-19.
Additionally, we understand through social media that their staff may have participated in an event that is in conflict with current state guidance.
City staff have contacted management and they have indicated that they currently are not aware of any positive cases, although a potluck was held over the holidays.
City staff is working with Solano County Public Health officials on this concern and will advise if this becomes a public health issue.
As a reminder, we continue to see cases surging throughout the state and urge members of our community to follow current orders and guidance. This includes frequent hand washing, wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing, limiting outings to essential activities and not gathering.
