A COVID-19 outbreak has been declared at an LCBO in Woodbridge after four employees reported testing positive for the virus.

According to a statement issued by the LCBO, in regard to previously mentioned positive cases on December 29, 31, and January 4, Public Health has declared an outbreak at the 8260 Highway 27 location.

“Should we receive any additional Public Health direction or guidance; we will act immediately and accordingly,” stated the liquor board.

The Woodbridge location reported four employees testing positive for COVID-19 which the LCBO disclosed on the previously mentioned dates.

During the holiday season, over 10 LCBO employees at several locations across Toronto and the GTA reported positive COVID-19 cases.

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

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.
