UPDATE: Oakville Metro location temporarily shut down after fourth employee tests positive for COVID-19


Your shopping trip at Metro may have to wait until later this weekend.

The Metro location on Upper Middle Road in Oakville has been temporarily shut down after a fourth employee tested positive for COVID-19 earlier today (Friday, May 1).

It was reported earlier that three of the store’s employees tested positive for the virus within the span of a week: One on April 23, one on April 25 and the third on April 29.

Metro communications manager Stephanie Bonk confirmed that Metro decided to temporarily close the location as a precaution.

According to Bonk, the store will undergo a thorough electrostatic cleaning on Saturday, May 2 and is set to reopen to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 3.

While not mandated by a governing body, Metro publishes all positive in-store COVID-19 cases in Ontario and Quebec on its corporate website.
