Coronavirus: Amazon worker at Atwater Village warehouse tests positive for COVID-19

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A worker at an Amazon warehouse in Atwater Village has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to the company.

Amazon said the infected person was on paid leave and recovering at home, and that the company was notifying the individual's co-workers.

Some Instacart and Amazon warehouse workers walked off the job Monday demanding greater safeguards against the coronavirus, even as both companies are speed-hiring hundreds of thousands of new workers to handle a surge in delivery orders.
