ORLAND, Calif. - The owner of a popular store in Orland has reopened his doors after exposing people to the coronavirus, now new safety measures are in place to protect his customers.

Jose Godinez is the owner of "Gloria's Restaurant & Market," on 4th Street, the store sells mostly miscellaneous items. Items sold include candles, clothing, food, and movies, just to name a few.

"I sell a lot of different stuff," Godinez said.

But when Godinez started feeling sick, he went to the doctors to find out what was wrong.

"They told me at Enloe Hospital that I have coronavirus," Godinez said. He stopped working shortly after May 9, 2020.

Soon after that Glenn County Public Health experts announced a possible exposure to coronavirus.

Health experts said if anyone visited "Gloria's Restaurant & Market," from April 24 to May 9 to contact them.

Godinez was sick from the virus and did not want to infect anyone else.

"You cannot get close to anybody," Godinez said. "I was in my own room for so many days."

Godinez says as of May 20, doctors gave him a clean bill of health. 

He is now back in business and cleaning every surface. Godinez has a jug filled with sanitizer - all to keep the germs away.

Inside his store, there are markers that encourage social distancing. Godinez recommends everyone who comes inside to wear a face mask, but not a requirement.

Gloria's Restaurant & Market, has been open since June 1, 2020, but Godinez says it's like a ghost town.

"They don't show up because they think I'm still sick," Godinez told Action News Now.

For those who do show up, Godinez says he is doing everything he can to keep customers safe, like setting up a plexiglass and cleaning all the doorknobs.

The neighboring store, "Tienda Rodriguez," also had a coronavirus exposure, according to Glenn County Public Health.

No word yet when the Tienda Rodriguez store might reopen.
