There is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Canadians: aged 65 and over, individuals with weakened immune systems, and individuals with underlying medical conditions. High risk individuals may be more likely to get an infection and/or develop complications if they contract the COVID-19 virus.  

Many stores are offering special hours for high risk individuals to shop. The chart below outlines which stores have this service. This is not a full list of grocery stores for the Health Unit district, only those offering special hours for high risk individuals that we are aware of. This information may be subject to change. Consider calling ahead to check store hours and/or checking store social media pages for updates. The second chart below summarizes grocery ordering and delivery services across the Health Unit district.  

Many stores are taking other measures to keep staff and customers safe, such as:

  • Promoting physical distancing
  • Extra cleaning and sanitizing around the store
  • Limiting the customers in the store at one time
  • Asking customers to bag their own items
  • Asking customers not to bring their own bags
  • Encouraging use of debit/credit rather than cash
  • Not accepting refunds 
  • Reduced store hours (consider calling ahead to check store hours)

Watch: Prof. Jeff Farber from U of G's Department of Food Science, offers tips for safe grocery store shopping amid COVID-19
