The Walgreens store and pharmacy in the Hyde Park Shopping Center, 1554 E. 55th St., was closed for cleaning Tuesday afternoon. The store had reopened by Wednesday afternoon, though the pharmacy remained closed and was scheduled to reopen Thursday.

An employee said that the store had been closed for “general cleaning,” and denied rumors a worker had tested positive for COVID-19.

The Herald has reached out to Walgreens media relations and will update this story with any response.

General store hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Senior shopping is available on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
