A Vancouver 7-Eleven location is currently closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a statement from the company, “7-Eleven Canada is notifying customers who may have visited its store at 710 W. 6th Ave & Heather St., Vancouver that one of its associates has a confirmed case of COVID-19.”

All staff are self-isolating with pay while the store is being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.

“Any customers who may have visited the store between June 20 to July 6 can call 811 for health guidance and information,” said a 7-Eleven spokesperson in a statement to Daily Hive.

“We plan to re-open the store on or before July 13, 2020, in consultation with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.”

The company says they have “enhanced standards and procedures for hygiene, hand-washing, sanitation, food handling and preparation in stores” and have increased the frequency of cleaning high-touch surfaces.

Sneeze guards have been installed at sales counters along with visual floor markers in checkout lines and limited customer traffic to reinforce physical distancing.
