COVID 19 SAFETY PLAN
Store Hours 7am-9pm daily.
We are actively following protocols established by Worksafe BC and Island Health to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. We will adapt as necessary as the situation evolves.
We encourage seniors and immunocompromised to shop between 7am-9am, as these are traditionally the quietest hours.
Our store is being sanitized continuously throughout the day at an increased rate, with special attention paid to high touch points. Checkout pin pad and counters, shopping carts and baskets will be sanitized frequently throughout the day.
Our staff have been instructed to stay home if they are sick, or are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or respiratory distress. When at work staff are required to wash and sanitize their hands regularly.
Employees must do a self-assessment before they enter the workplace and report to their supervisor/manager that they are symptom free.
COVID safety plans are posted in each department and the office. Please familiarize and ask your manager if you have any questions.
