One of Loblaw’s busiest stores in HRM has closed their doors out of an abundance of caution. From their spokesperson:
“I can confirm that we did close our Atlantic Superstore at 9 Braemar Drive, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia this morning, as one of our colleagues has recently tested positive for COVID-19.
To ensure the safety of our customers and team members, we have closed the store as we work with the local public health. We expect it will reopen tomorrow, once we’ve identified any other colleagues who need to self-isolate, and when we are comfortable the store has been thoroughly disinfected.
The protocols we have in place, including increased sanitization and the social distancing practices we’ve implemented, means the risk to our customers is low. However, we are proactively informing customers, and will continue to do what we can to ensure our store is safe and accessible for our customers.”
