Two employees at a Toronto grocery store in the city’s Church and Wellesley area have recently reported positive for COVID-19.

According to Loblaws Inc., a Loblaws location at 60 Carlton Street reported two positive cases of the virus among its staff members. The last day the team members worked were on September 27 and September 28.


Just last week, almost 15 Toronto grocery store s reported coronavirus cases, including No Frills, Sobeys, Fortinos and Loblaws.

“Given the important role we play in our communities, we are prepared for all possible situations, including a positive test for COVID-19 in our stores. In these cases, we work closely with public health and follow their guidance to ensure proper notification of close contacts and required cleaning and sanitization in our stores,” said Loblaws.

“In addition, we have mandated that our staff and customers wear masks in Extra Foods, Fortinos, Maxi, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstores and T&T stores across Canada.”

In an effort to maintain transparency, Loblaws regularly updates their coronavirus cases in stores by province within the last 15 days, as well as Sobey’s for 14 days.
