A team member at Christine's No Frills in Okotoks tested positive on a presumptive test for COVID-19 according to a July 27 statement from Loblaw.

The post on Loblaw's website added the individual's last day working at the store was on July 20. An employee had a confirmed case of COVID-19 at the same No Frills location in early April.

Loblaw states it regularly updates its media releases with COVID-19 cases in the past 15 days and for privacy reasons it will not release personal information about colleagues and employees.

Additionally, Loblaw states in the event of positive cases of COVID-19, the company "works closely with public health and follow their guidance to ensure proper notification of close contacts and required cleaning and sanitization in our stores." 

As of July 31, there are five confirmed active cases of COVID-19 in Okotoks along with 13 active cases in Foothills County.
