COVID-19

November 23, 2020

The Salvation Army Thrift Store’s mission to make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate has never been more important. We’re working diligently to serve our communities, while taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of our Guests, Donors, and employees.

Our number one priority remains the safety, health, and well-being of our shared communities. As such, we will be using this page to provide updates of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 experienced by our employees. In these cases, we work closely with public health authorities and follow their guidance to ensure proper notification of close contacts and required cleaning and sanitization in our stores.

For transparency, we regularly update the sections below with all positive COVID-19 cases in our stores, by province, in the last 14 days. For privacy, we will not release any personal information about employees.

Face masks are required to be worn by Guests and employees in all Salvation Army Thrift Stores across Canada, unless otherwise exempted. To learn more about what we are doing to help keep you safe, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact guestservices@salvationarmy.ca.
