Were or Are?

"Au cas où vous vous demanderiez où elle est, elle est allée au marché." Sorry if this sounds a silly question, but does the above translate... in case you are wondering or were wondering?

This relates to:
Au cas où + Le Conditionnel = In case -

Bonjour Pauline,

Literally, it's "you would be wondering," which we'd never say in English. Both "you were wondering" and "you are wondering" are acceptable.
