An employee at the Real Canadian Superstore location on Oxford Street East at Gammage Street in London, Ont., has tested positive on a presumptive test for the novel coronavirus, the chain’s parent company, Loblaws Inc., announced late Saturday.
In a statement, the company said the worker’s last day at the store was May 23, but noted the individual was not symptomatic and “wore a mask throughout.”
Loblaws provided no additional information, including where in the store the employee had been working or what other days they had been at the store.
In the statement, the company said it had arranged for additional cleaning, noting the store was expected to be “open as usual” on Sunday.
