Officials at 7-Eleven Canada say that anyone who visited a location southwest of Calgary in mid-April was able to contact an employee who contracted COVID-19.
The company says all customers who purchased from 7-Eleven at 615 Shawcliffe Gate S.W. between April 11 and April 25 may be at risk.
Anyone who has visited the store during these periods is advised to complete the COVID-19 online assessment on the province’s website.
In the meantime, all personnel on site are self-insulating, with pay, for a period of 14 days.
The store was also closed so that it could be cleaned and disinfected.
“As a neighborhood store and convenient delivery service provider in many communities, 7-Eleven Canada has taken steps to prioritize the health of our customers and employees in our 636 stores across Canada. We have improved our standards and procedures for hygiene, hand washing, hygiene, handling and preparing food in stores and increasing the frequency of cleaning very sensitive surfaces, “writes the company in a communicated.
The store is expected to reopen on May 9.
