Ocean County Wawa Closes After Employee Tests Positive For COVID19
If you've been to the Wawa on 195 Mathistown Road in Little Egg Harbor in the past few days, you might want to line up a COVID test.
A post on Facebook shared a picture of the sign that was taped to the front door of the Wawa:
Just in case that post gets taken down, here's what it said:

Well damn. I know I've been to that Wawa, but luckily it's not part of my daily routine. I can't even guess how many people go in and out of any given Wawa on any given day, so if you have a habit of hitting up that Wawa in LEH, and you were there last week, you might want to get a test just to be safe.
My awesome coworker Mark Anthony @ WOBM shared the story.
