The Canada Post Delivery Centre in Fort St. John was closed on Tuesday for sanitization after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The facility is resuming delivery services on Wednesday.

Canada Post spokesperson, Nicole Lecompte, says the employee followed all health protocols, including physical distancing and wearing a mask.

“We certainly understand that operating during COVID-19 can cause concerns for employees. That’s why, since the beginning, we’ve committed to closely following the advice of public health officials at the national and local level to keep the employees and the people they serve safe,” said Lecompte in an email.

“We also work closely with union officials at the local level to address concerns and adapt our approach as guidance evolves.”

The closure also affected mail delivery to the Shoppers Drug Mart postal outlet.
