VICTORIA -- Loblaw Companies LTD., the parent company of the Real Canadian Superstore, has posted a notice that several staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 at the superstore location in Duncan.

While the company did not specify how many employees tested positive for the virus, it did say that "multiple team members" were affected, according to presumptive tests.

The notice was posted on the Loblaw website Thursday.

Meanwhile, a staff member of a Thrifty Foods grocery store in Courtenay also tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
