Garden Foods - Statement by Peel Medical Officer of Health

Posted on Wednesday March 25, 2020

“Today, we learned an employee of Garden Foods in Bolton has tested positive for COVID-19. Peel Public Health is currently in contact with the individual to ensure they have the care they need and that they are in self-isolation.

The individual, who currently is well with no symptoms, does not work on the store floor, and has not been at work for several days.

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and it has become clear that with every day-to-day interaction, we all need to be vigilant and consider those moments chances where we may have come into contact with the virus.

During these times, we need people to take to heart the practice of physical distancing. We need them to work from home more, stay home more and not congregate outside in groups. When they do venture out, it should be for essential reasons only. Of course, they should always use personal protective behaviours like covering sneezes, washing hands with soap and avoiding touching their face.”
