JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - An employee at a Goodwill in Johns Island has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release by the company.

Goodwill has released the following statement:

“The health and safety of our employees and the broader Charleston community is our top priority. We are saddened to announce that one of our employees at our John’s Island store has tested positive for COVID-19.

We are supporting the affected employee, who is currently self-quarantined and resting at home. Our thoughts are with our employee, and we are hoping for a speedy recovery.”
