(Jan 12th) Statement on TBS Employee Positive Test Results for COVID-19

January 12, 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 Beer Store employee at our store located at 3130 Danforth Ave, Scarborough, has tested positive for COVID-19. The Beer Store is working in consultation with Toronto Public Health.

The employee’s last shift was Saturday, January 9. As our team member receives care, we are sending our positive thoughts and best wishes. All potentially affected employees will self-isolate or symptom monitor as a precautionary measure as directed by Toronto Public Health.

The Beer Store has implemented its full COVID-19 cleaning protocol at the store, including thorough disinfectant deep cleaning. The store has been closed and will reopen for business on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

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.
