Six warehouse workers for Amazon have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, according to The Washington Post.

As much of the nation has depended upon Amazon for vital access to products, workers at facilities in New York City, Jacksonville, Florida, Sheperdsville, Kentucky, Katy, Texas, Brownstown, Michigan and Oklahoma City were infected with the coronavirus, the Post reported on Tuesday.

“In some cases, Amazon shut down facilities for cleaning, and some co-workers who were in close contact with their infected colleagues have been quarantined.”

Workers at Amazon warehouses in Italy and Spain has also tested positive. In response, some 1,500 Amazon employees signed a petition that urged Amazon to take more steps to protect them, according to the Post. 

In a letter to employees on Friday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said, “There is no instruction manual for how to feel at a time like this, and I know this causes stress for everyone.”
