IKEA Coquitlam has been closed temporarily after a worker tested positive for COVID-19.
In an update today, IKEA said a co-worker at the IKEA Coquitlam store has tested positive for COVID-19.
“We are supporting our co-worker to ensure they have everything they need and hope for their full recovery soon,” the company said.
“The safety of IKEA co-workers and customers is our top priority and we are taking extensive precautionary measures to reduce any risk of further exposure, always following the guidelines of British Columbia Health Services.”
IKEA said it will go above the established cleaning protocols and will temporarily cease operations to complete an enhanced cleaning and sanitization process by a third-party expert at the store and External Warehouse.
“We will re-open the store and External Warehouse once the sanitization process is complete,” the company said.
