EL PASO, Texas -- A northeast El Paso Walmart store was abruptly closed Friday due to apparent concerns about the the spread of Covid-19.

The store at 5631 Dyer Street shut down Friday afternoon and the company said it would remain closed until Sunday morning.

Walmart indicated the store was closed for cleaning and disinfecting.

In a statement, the retail giant cited El Paso's "new spike of coronavirus cases," but didn't provide any further specifics as to the reasons for the closure of that particular store.

All other El Paso area Walmart stores appeared to remain in operation as usual on Friday afternoon.

El Paso Mayor Dee Margo in recent days has said that retail stores in the city are the number one source of virus spread in the community.

  1. I’m amazed that we still have to play nanny to a bunch of self centered and irresponsible “adults”. This has been going on now for months and we still have to tell people to put a mask on? Idiots

      1. alberto pedo muerto was seen with his tele tubby ass entering the premises without a mask on its face or its ass. That could surely could have caused the outbreak.

      2. Original menso catch up infectious control moron! It’s a contact virus as well. No way in your book a covid infected individual touched his mouth in the car, donned the mask, touched the cart, someone touched that cart, that someone touched his face in the car after shopping? Is that a possible path of infection. You bunch of idiots! Idiot!!!! Idiots!!! Trump dumbasses!!!
