GTA Costco employee tests positive for coronavirus

Jun 2 2020, 9:33 am

An employee at Markham’s Kirkham Drive Costco location has tested positive for COVID-19.

Patrick Casey, director of corporate communications for York Region, tells Daily Hive that the affected employee, of the 65 Kirkham Drive store, resides outside the region.

Public health is reportedly working with Costco’s management and, Casey said, does not post public notices or disclose details of all workplaces with cases of the illness.

Such information is shared when close contacts of an affected individual cannot all be identified, or, when “there may be a greater risk of public exposure.”

The employee’s last day of work was not disclosed to Daily Hive.

“A public posting for this Costco location is not warranted at this time,” Casey said.
