Beer Store averaging one COVID positive staffperson per day

While not exactly keeping pace with the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s (LCBO) daily case of COVID-19, Ontario’s Beer Store is averaging almost the same number of positive tests among staff, as noted on its corporate website.

“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. All potentially affected employees will either symptom monitor or self-isolate based on circumstances as a precautionary measure,” reads the preamble to each of the individual, almost-daily news releases.

In all cases as the employee receives care, the Beer store  sends “positive thoughts and best wishes.”
