The Flathead Food Bank will reopen next Tuesday after an isolated coronavirus incident put all staff into quarantine.

Flathead Food Bank Director Jamie Quinn said an office staff member got tested for coronavirus after her child came in contact with a positive case.

That staff member ended up testing positive earlier this week.

Quinn says all food bank staff have quarantined after learning of the positive case and all have tested negative.

She assures clients there is no need to worry about coming in contact with the positive case as the staff member never packed food.

She adds this was an isolated incident and Flathead Food Bank will re-open Tuesday, September 22.
