According to the liquor board, on January 20, the affected LCBO at 2625D Weston Road reported an employee testing positive for coronavirus. They 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.”

Over the past weekend, four LCBO locations reported positive COVID-19 among their employees.

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.
