The Burnaby Wholesale Club.

A Burnaby grocery store has been alerted about an employee recently testing positive for COVID-19.

Loblaw Companies Ltd. says an employee at Wholesale Club, located at 5335 Kingsway, has contracted the virus and last worked on May 8. 

On May 6, an employee at Real Canadian Superstore at Metropolis at Metrotown tested positive. 

In some instances, the listing on the Loblaw COVID-19 tracker represents an additional case being added to a previous store listing, when more employees at the same location become infected.

Loblaw Companies Ltd, the parent company of Real Canadian Superstore, No Frills, Shoppers Drug Mart, Wholesale Club and Your Independent Grocer, updated its COVID-19 employee case tracker May 7 to 10 to indicate the following new store worker cases across the Lower Mainland:

  • Shoppers Drug Mart, 17790 Highway 10, Surrey: The last day the team member worked was on April 28.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 350 S.E. Marine Dr, Vancouver: The last day the team member worked was on May 5.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 14650 - 104th Avenue, Surrey: The last days worked by the three infected team members were April 23, 28 and May 5.
  • Shoppers Drug Mart, 20159, 88th Avenue, Langley: The last day the team member worked was on April 30.
  • Shoppers Drug Mart, 370 East Broadway, Vancouver: The last day both of the two infected team members worked was on May 1.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 2332 160th St., Surrey: The last day the team member worked was on May 2.
  • Coquitlam Your Independent Grocer, 455 North Rd, Coquitlam: The last day the team member worked was on May 6.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 3000 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam: The last day the team member worked was on May 1.
  • Real Canadian Superstore, 45779 Luckakuck Way, Chilliwack: The last day any of the three infected team members worked was on April 26, 27 and May 5.
  • Dean's No Frills Vancouver, 4508 Fraser Street, Vancouver: The last day the team member worked was on May 4.

While T&T Supermarket is owned by Loblaw, the Canadian Asian grocery chain lists its COVID-19 cases separately on its own site and has had no employee at work in the last two weeks who has since tested positive for the virus.

Last week, both Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health announced they were prioritizing frontline workers, including adult grocery store staff, for COVID-19 vaccination.
