Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries (MLL) has announced an employee at the Flin Flon Liquor Mart has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a notice sent to The Reminder, MLL confirmed that the employee was now self-isolating and last worked June 25 from 11:15 a.m.-7:15 p.m. and on June 26 from 11:15 a.m.-2:30 p.m. MLL also confirmed that the employee did not experience any symptoms during these two shifts.
"While at work, employees are expected to adhere to all safety protocols including proper mask use, hand hygiene, physical distancing, and proper disinfection of high-touch points," reads the statement from MLL.
"Our employees are also required to self-screen for signs of COVID-19 before their shift and prior to entering any of our buildings."
No other employees at the Liquor Mart have been confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19. The Reminder has reached out to MLL for comment.
It is the first time a positive case has been linked to the Flin Flon store since the pandemic began. MLL, which notifies the public if any of the Crown agency's employees tests positive for COVID-19, has not announced any positive cases in any Manitoba Liquor Mart location since May 28, where an employee tested positive at a store in Winnipeg.
MLL has not released any identifying details or personal information relating to the positive case in Flin Flon.
