As for the 150 Sidney St. location, the employee’s last day was Sept. 23.

“Following all presumed positive cases at each location, we brought in third-party sanitization experts, and worked closely with local public health to ensure it was safe to reopen and that employees who may have been directly exposed are home self-isolating and monitoring for symptoms,” Loblaws said in a statement.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health has yet to respond to further clarification questions.
