Customers shopping at Longo’s locations across Ontario are now required to wear masks in stores, the grocer has announced.
As of May 4, the company says that visitors to Longo’s stores must wear a mask or face covering, and are encouraged to bring their own. However, stores will supply options for those who arrive without one.
“Guests are required to wear a mask or face covering while in the store. Please bring one with you to keep everyone safe,” reads the grocery store’s website.
“If you have forgotten your face covering or need a mask, please speak with a Team Member at the store entrance.”
As much as we want to see your smiles, as of May 4th we require Guests to wear a face mask or covering while in store. Please help do your part in keeping the community safe.

In late April, Longo’s announced the roll-out of mandatory daily temperature checks for employees across all its stores.
The procedure had already begun at Grocery Gateway locations.
The grocer is encouraging all guests to support “Community Wellbeing Hour” in stores, which runs from 7 am to 8 am and is dedicated for seniors and high-risk individuals to get their shopping done.
