Positive COVID-19
Last updated: October 12, 2021

To our Members, Owners and Customers of Discovery Co-op,

An employee at one of our Discovery Co-op locations has tested positive for COVID-19. Our team member is self-isolating and any other employee who had close contact with that individual is also asked to self-monitor and seek guidance from the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), including testing.

Discovery Co-op will follow the direction of the SHA and will continue with the health and safety measures that were put in place in response to the pandemic:
• Increasing our already high standards for cleaning and sanitization
• Practicing physical distancing measures (including one-way aisles and plexi-glass barriers at our counters)
• Our employees are wearing masks to protect those around us
• Team members are asked to stay home if feeling unwell, and we continue to encourage all team members to seek testing and undergo self-isolation if they feel any potential COVID-19 symptoms.

We wish a quick and safe recovery to each of the individuals who have been affected by this virus.

Our priority remains to keep our team members and customers safe and healthy while serving our friends and neighbours. We care greatly for the communities we work and live in and as a local, member-owned business, we take the responsibility to protect our communities seriously.

The health and safety of our team members and our guests is our priority, and our response to the pandemic includes diligent sanitation practices, physical barriers and social distancing in our locations.

Many of the practices we have adopted over the past few months exceed the recommendations in the provincial guidelines. We have and will continue to encourage our team members to stay home if unwell and seek testing if experiencing symptoms.

We care greatly for the communities we work and live in and as a local, member-owned business, we take the responsibility to protect our communities seriously. We will continue to share how we are responding to the pandemic through this COVID-19 response page, and will keep monitoring, evaluating, and enhancing this response as our environments continue to change.

Thank you for your diligence, support and care for each other as we all take the necessary steps to keep our communities safe.
