“The health unit does not typically identify specific cases tied to a particular facility or business unless there is a compelling public health reason to do so,” the spokesperson said.

“We can confirm that the business’s decision to close was not at the direction of the Middlesex-London Health Unit.”

The grocery store, which operates out of Westmount Shopping Centre on Wonderland Road South, says it will be using the 13-day closure to “conduct a deep cleaning and sanitization of the store.”
