Toronto Public Health to start monitoring malls for coronavirus compliance

Sep 3 2020, 2:46 pm

As more and more COVID-19 cases are being found in city malls and around the area,  Toronto Public Health staff will start looking into shopping malls and stores to ensure health requirements are being followed.

According to the city, public health staff will be heading to malls and stores to make sure that health and safety requirements are being followed.

“Those shopping in person are encouraged to shop at times when stores may be less busy or to try shopping online, when possible,” the city said.

This effort comes days after several malls have reported cases in the city including Yorkdale Mall and Sherway Gardens.

Footlocker and JOEY Yorkdale had both closed locations for cleaning after confirming positive coronavirus cases.

Sherway Gardens reported a second JOEY location in the area to have found a positive case among employees, as well as The Keg.

“Residents should wear a mask and keep a physical distance while shopping, and always wash or sanitize their hands after being in a store or public place and not go out if they are feeling ill,” states the city.
