A Toronto LCBO location was temporarily closed over the weekend because an in-store vendor tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the case disclosure, the vendor last worked at the location on Friday, June 26.

As a result of the diagnosis, the location was closed out of precaution for deep cleaning, and was reopened on Saturday, June 27.

Public Health has not provided any direction or recommendations with respect to this location, the LCBO said, but this information is being shared out of transparency.

Last week, the LCBO reported two new employee cases of coronavirus. One was identified at 232 Dupont Street, and the other, at 3111 Danforth Avenue. In the case of the former, the store was closed for deep cleaning. The Danforth Avenue location, however, remained open.

As the province gradually reopens, the LCBO says it will continue to prioritize the health and well-being of its employees, and there are safety measures in place, including cleaning and sanitization, in-store promotion of physical distancing, and HR policies in support of staff.
