A Tim Hortons employee in the Town of Renfrew has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit confirmed the news in a press release Saturday.

As a result, Tim Hortons management has voluntarily closed both Tim Hortons locations in Renfrew temporarily as they go through a deep cleaning.

All staff have been deemed to be a close contact of the positive individual, and have been given direction to self-isolation and arrange for testing.

All patrons, including those who dined-in and visited the drive-thru, are not considered to be at risk.

However, all residents are advised to self-monitor daily for COVID-19 symptoms.

RCDHU said it is working closely with Tim Hortons management staff at both locations to make sure all necessary measures continue to be in place.

The RCDHU also said it is actively investigating the case and all high risk contacts will get a standard text message from the health unit’s virtual assistant within 24 hours, notifying them that they had recently been exposed to the virus.
