At least one employee of a Hamilton grocery store has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past few days.
While many grocery and restaurant chains are no longer disclosing COVID-19 cases in their stores, an employee at the Farm Boy grocery store on the West Mountain (801 Mohawk Rd. W.) has tested positive. Their condition was confirmed on Nov. 29; they had last worked on Nov. 23.
Farm Boy has stated said that in these instances, public health units and the stores work to carry out contact tracing immediately. The stores are also thoroughly sanitized.
Metro, which also operates Food Basics, is still disclosing cases among food workers. So is Sobeys, whose stores also include FreshCo and Foodland.
Loblaw Companies Limited, whose stores include Fortinos, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore and Shoppers Drug Mart, is no longer making COVID-19 cases in its stores public. Neither is McDonald’s.
