STATEMENT ON LCBO EMPLOYEE TESTING POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 – Toronto – The LCBO has been notified that an employee who is part of the team at LCBO Store #526 in Ottawa (465 Bank St.) has tested positive for COVID-19. The last shift worked in-store was on Saturday, September 26, 2020. The employee is self-isolating at home, and we wish them well.

Out of an abundance of caution, and in addition to regular cleaning since Saturday, this location was temporarily closed yesterday evening for deep cleaning and will open for regular business hours today. Public Health has not provided any directions or recommendations with respect to this location. This general notice is being provided out of transparency.

The LCBO has several measures to keep employees and customers safe, including regular cleaning and sanitization, mandatory face coverings, and in-store measures that promote physical distancing.
