“Yes, one of our team members from the Loblaws Victoria Park and Gerard (50 Musgrave Street, Toronto) location has recently tested positive on a presumptive test for COVID-19.  We are reaching out to the local public health team and have taken a number of steps to minimize risk, including increased sanitization protocols and enforcing social distancing practices in the store,” the statement said.
