The Williamstown Walmart is the fourth store in the state to temporarily close for what the company is calling an initiative to fight COVID-19. Within the past several days, Walmarts in Linden, Kearny, and Manville, all in North Jersey, were closed for the same reason.

"We try to get ahead of things. We see COVID cases increasing in certain communities and have a team that reviews COVID cases based on what's happening in the community specifically. We work with the local health department to determine if its best to close to pre-empt potential outbreaks," a Walmart spokeswoman told the Townsquare News Network regarding the Linden closing.
