The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is advising customers who have visited the Spirit Halloween store in Devonshire Mall to watch for symptoms of COVID-19 after a store worker tested positive for the virus.
The health unit was informed that the employee, who was working on August 25, tested positive for COVID-19.
WECHU staff have spoken to the employee and are working to identify close contacts, according to a press release from the health unit.
All appropriate precautions were taken by the locals and the staff member in question wore a face mask while working.
There is a potential risk of exposure to COVID-19 for customers who visited the store that day, but the health unit said the risk was “low.”
