Another positive COVID-19 case has been reported within the Toronto Eaton Centre’s Urban Planet store location, this afternoon.

According to a letter to retail clients, obtained by Daily Hive, Cadillac Fairview confirms another client of an unrelated case of COVID-19 was reported in the premises.

The memo, dated September 8, says Urban Planet acted quickly by contacting both CF and Public Health.

“The client and CF have taken necessary actions as advised by public health by arranging a deep clean of the client space,” reads the note.

“The health and safety of our guests, clients and employees is our primary concern. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have put in place a number of additional measures, including physical distancing, use of PPE and increased cleaning of high touch point surfaces, all in an effort to help fight the spread of COVID-19.”

Cadillac Fairview confirmed to Daily Hive of the case on their premises.

“At the same time, CF has undertaken extra cleaning of all elevator banks, food court tables, common area seating, doors and stair railings, and all other high-touch points in the complex. At this point in time, no further action is required and the building can remain open for business.”

This past weekend, the Uniqlo location in the mall also reported a client with a confirmed COVID-19 case on their premises, leading to another deep-cleaning.

Last week, a few employees at both Yorkdale Mall and Sherway Gardens had also tested positive for the virus, leading to several temporary closures to ensure cleaning and sanitization has been done.

Cases were also found at GoodLife Fitness gyms throughout the GTA, as well as at a Winners location in Markham after a shopper alerted the retailer of their results.

Toronto public health staff will also be heading to malls and stores to ensure that health and safety requirements are being followed amid the several cases being found in public spaces.

“We will continue to pay close attention to the COVID-19 environment and adjust our practises as required,” said Cadillac Fairview.
