Two employees at LCBO locations in Mississauga have reported testing positive for COVID-19, adding to the growing number of cases reported in the GTA.

On January 15, an LCBO employee at 5925 Rodeo Drive, reported testing positive for the virus. They had last worked in-store on January 3.

At the 7205 Goreway Drive LCBO location in Mississauga, an employee reported testing positive for COVID-19 and had last worked on January 5.

“This general notice is being provided out of transparency. Should we receive any Public Health direction or guidance, we will act immediately and accordingly,” the LCBO said in a release.

“The LCBO has several measures to keep employees and customers safe, including regular cleaning and sanitization, and in-store measures that promote physical distancing.”

The liquor board also reduced its in-store shopping capacities to 25% due to the recent provincial lockdown. Customer returns will also be paused throughout the shutdown.

“We remain committed to meeting or exceeding public health guidance and will continue to operate as efficiently as we can within the space required for our staff to work and our customers to shop safely,” said the LCBO.
