A staff member at a North Kamloops grocery store has tested positive for COVID-19 and the company is working with public health officials to minimize risk.
In a statement to KTW, Loblaw’s public relations department said a staff member from Cain’s Your Independent Grocer, located at 700 Tranquille Rd., tested positive.
The last day the employee worked was on Jan. 4.
Loblaw cited privacy reasons for an inability to confirm the nature of the work of the employee.
“What we can tell you is that any team members who worked closely with this individual are now at home in self-isolation, monitoring for any symptoms,” the statement reads.
The company said it is working with public health and has taken a number of safety measures, including increased sanitization protocols, enforced social distancing and additional store cleaning.
