Brampton LCBO employee tests positive for COVID-19
A Brampton LCBO employee has reported testing positive for COVID-19 and had last worked during the holiday season.
On January 6, an LCBO location at 100 Clementine Drive reported an employee testing positive for the virus. They had last worked on December 28.
Over the Christmas holidays, nine employees at separate locations reported cases across Toronto and the GTA.
“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.
