Bryan Dozier, owner of Food King stores based in Biscoe, Troy and Mt. Gilead said that a worker, who had the sniffles last week, was tested for COVID-19; however, no tests results have been received to date. Dozier said the individual was feeling better and was wanting to come back to work; however, Dozier is not allowing the person to do so, until test results are back with a negative result.

Dozier said the false rumors of price gouging and of spreading the virus that are being pushed on social media sites will be dealt with in the courts when this crisis is over. Employees at the stores are working extremely long hours to keep up with the demand and is going to do whatever necessary to protect those hard working individuals, even if legal action is necessary.
