STATEMENT ON LCBO EMPLOYEE TESTING POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

Thursday, May 7, 2020 – Toronto  

The LCBO was notified late last night (May 6, 2020) that an employee at LCBO Store #584 at Woodside Square in Scarborough (1571 Sandhurst Circle) has tested positive for COVID-19. This employee last worked in-store on Saturday, May 2, 2020 and there is no indication that the confirmed case was a result of a workplace exposure.

The employee is currently resting at home and we wish them a full and speedy recovery.

As a precautionary measure, this retail location will be closed to the public while deep cleaning takes place and is expected to reopen tomorrow. Public Health has not provided any directions or recommendations with respect to this location. This general notice is being provided out of transparency for customers who may have recently shopped at this location.

The LCBO considers the health and well-being of its employees our top priority and we are working with OPSEU Liquor Board Employee Division to ensure that the store’s employees are given information and the support they need moving forward.

The LCBO has several measures to keep our employees and customers safe, including increased cleaning and sanitization, in-store measures that promote physical distancing and introducing new HR policies in support of employees.
