Employee of Milwaukee manufacturing facility Snap-On tests positive for COVID-19

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- An employee of the Milwaukee manufacturing facility Snap-On has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the company VP, Snap-On immediately cordoned off the employee's work area, informed all personnel, and advised all associates in direct contact with the individual to self-quarantine.

The company says the employee was asymptomatic, but was tested after close contact with an individual outside of work who exhibited symptoms.

"The Milwaukee plant will remain open and operational because of the critical nature of its work in serving essential entities of the U.S. military, auto repair garages, and transportation services," according to a news release. 

A specialized cleaning service will disinfect and sanitize the work area.
