Two LCBO employees have tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, as more cases continue to be reported across the province.

On January 26, an employee at the 49 Spadina Avenue location reported testing positive for COVID-19. They had last worked on January 23.

In Mississauga, an LCBO employee at 1077 North Service Road, also reported testing positive for the virus and had last worked on January 22.

According to the liquor board, this is further to the advisory of a previous case on January 18.

“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.
