Today, we shared details regarding the implementation of LCBO’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccine and testing policy, which takes effect at the LCBO on September 26, 2021. 

As you, our valued Trade partners, do take part in active screening when visiting or performing activities in our stores and offices it is our expectation that, as of October 30, 2021, all Trade partners entering LCBO workplaces be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless medically exempt, or undertake regular COVID-19 testing. The details of the policy and your responsibilities are outlined here in the below document.  

Last week, the provincial government released details on the vaccine certificate system for non-essential activities. This does not apply to retailers, including LCBO, grocery, and pharmacy. 

We continue to strictly follow all required public health requirements related to health screening, in-store traffic, physical distancing, and face coverings and will continue to require you to do the same in our workplaces. 

Thank you for your continued support as we do all we can to keep the LCBO a safe place to work and shop and support our shared communities.
