“We discovered that some of our clients were exposed to COVID. With that said, we have decided to close our Thrift Store and quarantine the clients and staff until further notice,” the staff of the mission located on Washington Street said in a post on social media. “We will also be unable to feed the public our daily meals until everyone has tested negative for the virus.”
