COVID-19 case at Arrowwood Co-op
May 19, 2021
Our Co-op is providing essential goods during the COVID-19 pandemic, while working to protect the health and safety of our members, our customers and our employees.
We’ve learned that an employee working at our Co-op has been confirmed to have COVID-19.
To protect our community, we’ve taken the following actions:
• We’ve reviewed the employee’s work schedule and have determined with the help of AHS that no other employee’s have been in close contact.
• We deep cleaned the location, paying particular attention to areas they have been and surfaces they contacted. We continue maintaining high standards of cleaning at all of our store.
• When COVID-19 was confirmed, we contacted the AHS and are following the direction they provided.
• We are not closing our store. Our priority remains supplying our community while keeping our team members, customers, and communities safe and healthy.
We understand the impacts of COVID-19, which is why we want to be transparent and disclose broad details about the confirmed case while ensuring the confidentiality of our team.
We appreciate the work being done by all our employees in serving our Co-op and we’re working to support them as we make our way through this pandemic together. That’s why when any of our employees are feeling unwell or showing symptoms, they are directed to self-isolate at home and seek testing. We also conduct contact tracing and advise any individual who had been in close contact to self-isolate and see guidance from the Alberta Health Services. We will continue to inform our members and customers of any positive cases.
