Temperature checks will be done on staff and customers at T&T Supermarket locations across Canada starting April 20 to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

T&T Supermarket, which has stores in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, confirmed in a Facebook post on Saturday that temperature checks will be rolled out in their locations across Canada.

“As we all know, fever is the most common symptom for COVID-19,” said T&T Supermarket in a Facebook post. “In order to protect our customers and staff, we will be providing a temperature check service starting on the coming Monday (April 20).”

Temperatures will be checked with infrared technology by an employee wearing a mask and gloves standing at the front of a store’s entrance.

Paul Ho, a spokesperson for T&T Supermarket, said that temperature checks are one way the grocery store chain is helping to curb the spread of COVID-19 among their staff and customers.

“We are checking all staff, and providing it as a voluntary service for our customers,” said Ho. “Anyone with a fever will be asked to go home and contact their health care provider.”

Ho said that staff discovered to have a fever will be paid for missed shifts. Customers with a fever will be sent home with a face mask.

Grocery stores across Canada remain open during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic because they are considered an essential service.

Most grocery stores have implemented physical distancing guidelines, ensuring staff and customers are following provincial orders.
