(April 6th) Statement on TBS Employee Positive Test Results for COVID-19

April 6, 2021

As we work collectively to battle COVID-19, nothing is more important to us at the Beer Store than the health and wellness of our customers and the more than 7,000 Beer Store employees across the province.

We have learned that a second Beer Store employee at our store located at 514 Adelaide St., London, has tested positive for COVID-19. The Beer Store is working in consultation with the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

The employee’s last shift was Saturday, April 3rd, 2021. As our team member receives care, we are sending our positive thoughts and best wishes. All potentially affected employees will either symptom monitor or self-isolate based on circumstances as a precautionary measure.

Contact tracing is being coordinated with the Middlesex-London Health Unit. All indications are that the employees contacted COVID-19 through community transmission and not in the workplace. They did not have contact or work the same shift as the first case.

The Beer Store had closed this location to implement its full COVID-19 cleaning protocol at the store, including thorough disinfectant deep cleaning, and it reopened earlier today on Tuesday, April 6th.

The Beer Store has implemented mandatory employee face coverings in all our stores, in addition to robust cleaning and public distancing protocols already in place. As per this protocol, all Beer Store employees working at this location were wearing face coverings.
