Two of Quebec’s leading grocery retailers, IGA and Metro, have released lists detailing when and where employees and customers have tested positive for COVID-19.
As of Monday, each grocery store had additional cases reported compared to last week.
Both store chains said that out of respect and for confidentiality reasons, it will never release any personal information about infected employees or clients.
“We will always contact and follow the guidance of Public Health to ensure the safety of our teammates and customers whenever we are made aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in one of our food stores or distribution centres,” reads the Metro website. “We will continue to update the COVID-19 tracker below daily to be transparent with you where we have been notified of cases of COVID-19 in our food stores and distribution centres.”
Both grocery store chains said they are cleaning and sanitizing every store location to ensure customer safety.
The new cases at Metro were reported on July 15, and include Metro Plus Dollard on 1880 avenue Dollard in Lasalle, as well as Super C St-Jaques, located at 6900 Saint-Jacques in Montreal.
At IGA, two new cases were reported on July 16 and 17. One is for the IGA in Delson, and another is an IGA at 3950 Rue King Ouest in Sherbrooke.
Both companies say the information will be updated as new details are announced.
