A Windsor grocery store is the latest business added to the list for potential COVID-19 exposure.
The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit says there was possible exposure to the virus at Fred’s Farm Fresh International Market at 2144 Huron Church Road on Aug. 29 and 30.
The health unit posted the alert on their new “Public Exposure Notifications” webpage.
CTV News reached out to Fred’s Farm Fresh, but they declined comment. They did post a message on their Facebook page.
“We have been working closely with the health unit to ensure all cleaning and sanitizing practices as well as social distancing procedures are on point,” said the post by Fred’s Farm Fresh. “Thanks to our hardworking staff we have been diligently following all of the rules of the WECHU to ensure the health and safety of all of our staff and customers.”
WECHU’s website now lists public locations where a person with a positive case of COVID-19 worked, visited, or attended during their infectious period when it is determined there has been a risk of exposure and the health unit is unable to contact everyone who may have been exposed.
The health unit website says the potential exposures listed on its page are considered “low risk” however as a precaution the WECHU asks anyone who visited the listed locations to self-monitor for 14 days from the date of exposure.
