EUGENE, Ore.-- A Walgreens in north Eugene shut down Wednesday evening due to an employee being evaluated for COVID-19.

Walgreens confirmed this to KEZI 9 News Thursday afternoon. The store on River Road was shut down for hours so a professional cleaning crew could do a deep clean.

But this does not mean the employee tested positive. Walgreens said they take all positive or presumptive cases seriously. They will deep clean any store that might pose a health risk to the public.

Officials from Lane County Public Health said there are no positive cases linked to Walgreens in the area.

As of Thursday, the Walgreens on River Road is back open to the public. 

Lane County Public Health will be notified of the test results. Stay with KEZI for updates.
