Sep 4 2020, 1:49 pm

Toronto grocery stores and LCBO locations may disclose instances of employees having tested positive for COVID-19.

We’re consolidating this information so that, going into the weekend, you know which local spots have seen recent cases and if there are any closures to be aware of.

Here are the updates on confirmed cases of coronavirus between August 31 and September 4:


  • Recently reported, an LCBO employee at the 2803 Dundas Street West location on August 27 tested positive for the virus. The employee had last worked in-store on August 13.

Those entering LCBO locations are required to wear a mask or face covering when shopping in cities or towns where municipal bylaws or orders have made it mandatory, which also includes Toronto.

As the province of Ontario gradually reopens, the LCBO says it will continue to prioritize the health and well-being of its employees, and there are safety measures in place, including cleaning and sanitization, in-store promotion of physical distancing, and HR policies in support of staff.

  • Just last week, according to Metro, the store was made aware of the positive COVID-19 test on August 29 from their Metro location at 16 William Kitchen Road. The employee had last worked their shift on August 27.

Here is the case at Metro listed this week:

Metro has previously shared cases of coronavirus at locations including Parkway Mall, West Queen West, Bloor and Spadina, College and Shaw, The Cold Chain Produce Distribution Centre, and more.

“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 Metro’s website.

The grocer says its online tracker is continually being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed.
