Employees test positive for COVID-19 at Edina Galleria

The stores have not been identified.

The Galleria in Edina continues to implement safety measures after two stores reported having one employee, respectively, test positive for COVID-19. 

The stores – there are 71 shops/restaurants in the Galleria – have not been identified, and none of the stores have temporarily closed as a result. Galleria Management announced that "one individual has not been in the building since July 9th and the other individual has not been on the property since July 17th." 

"Employees identified as having been in proximity to the confirmed individual have been contacted and these individuals have been in self-quarantine as a precautionary measure, broadly advised by public health officials," management said. 

"The affected tenant spaces have undergone deep cleaning and sanitization."

Enhanced cleaning through the upscale mall will continue, in addition to what management calls "increased cleaning and disinfecting frequency in all common areas, elevators, and restrooms." 

Per Gov. Tim Walz's executive order, masks are required indoors at the Galleria unless a person has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering, or if a child is under the age of 5. Anyone who can wear a mask and doesn't have one can get one free of charge at the Galleria.
