Two LCBO employees have tested positive for COVID-19 over the past long weekend, a slight decline in reported cases in the last few weeks.

According to the liquor board, on February 14, an employee at the 502 Lawrence Avenue West location reported testing positive for COVID-19. They had last worked in-store on February 11.

This case is the second reported case since February 2 at the same location.

In Woodbridge, an employee at the 7850 Weston Road location also reported testing positive for the virus on February 14. They had last worked on February 10.

Last week, eight separate locations reported employees testing positive for the virus across 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.
