The T&T Su­per­mar­ket at Cal­gary’s Pa­cific Place Mall is closed af­ter a staff mem­ber tested pos­i­tive for COVID -19.

The com­pany’s CEO, Tina Lee, posted on Face­book on Thurs­day that the em­ployee had last worked in the store, at 999 36th Street N.E., on March 21. The em­ployee stayed home af­ter feel­ing sick the next day and the pos­i­tive test was con­firmed March 25.

“We are main­tain­ing close com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the col­league, who re­ports feel­ing bet­ter with­out a fever,” Lee said in the state­ment.

The store will be closed and thor­oughly cleaned while all staff re­main home to mon­i­tor their health for at least 14 days. It is ex­pected to re­open April 8, as gro­cery stores are seen as an es­sen­tial ser­vice.

“It is our duty and our pride to serve Cal­gary, and all the com­mu­ni­ties we op­er­ate in,” said Lee. “I ask for your pa­tience as we work closely with pub­lic health to en­sure our staff are all healthy be­fore we re­open.”

The Pa­cific Place Mall closed all non-es­sen­tial stores on Thurs­day for a deep clean­ing of the shop­ping cen­tre. Es­sen­tial ser­vices such as the Cana­dian Di­ag­nos­tic Cen­tre, Cana­dian Back In­sti­tute, Prime Care Health and Phar­masave re­main open.
