NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine (WABI) - A New Balance employee has tested positive for COVID 19, causing the second closure of both the Norridgewock and Skowhegan factories.

That’s according to company officials.

The company says this is the first confirmed case for a Maine associate.

The facilities were briefly shut down in early July as a precaution after an employee showed symptoms similar to those seen with coronavirus.

The factories closed Friday to allow for additional cleaning.
