(May 3rd) Statement on TBS Employee Positive Test Results for COVID-19

May 3, 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 10375 Yonge St N Richmond Hill has tested positive for COVID-19. The Beer Store is working in consultation with York Public Health.

The employee’s last shift was May 2nd, 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 York Public Health. All indications are that the employees contacted COVID-19 through community transmission and not in the workplace.

The Beer Store has implemented its full COVID-19 cleaning protocol at the store.

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.
