Aritzia has announced the temporary closure of its Coquitlam Centre store due to potential exposure to a positive COVID-19 case that took place outside of the workplace.

In an email to Daily Hive, Mary Fraser, senior director of communications with Aritzia, stated the closure comes “out of an abundance of caution.”

“We’re working closely with local health authorities to take all necessary precautions and follow-up to ensure the safety of all. The local health authorities assess and lead on all contact tracing if and when necessary,” stated Fraser.

“The BC health authorities have confirmed with us that the industry-leading measures we have in place in our stores reduce the risk of exposure in the workplace.”

A full list of Aritzia’s health and safety measures can be found online.

Aritzia began reopening its stores around Metro Vancouver in May.
