“On Thursday, October 29 we were informed a team member tested positive on a presumptive test for COVID-19; that team member’s last day worked was October 27 and as a precaution, we asked staff who may have been in contact with this team member to self-isolate and be tested,” Spinelli said.
“In the past 48 hours, we have been informed of three additional positive COVID-19 cases within our Calgary team.
“All three individuals are self-isolating at home and on the road to recovery.”
Spinelli said they weren’t asked to close their doors by Alberta Health Services, but made the decision as a commitment to keep “staff, customers and the community safe.”
“We have made this tough decision to conduct a thorough deep cleaning and sanitization of the entire store while our employees are encouraged to get tested.”
In closing, Spinelli said the incident has “acted as a reminder for myself, my family and team members that COVID-19 continues to be very present in our lives and community every single day.”
