A Coquitlam gas station is the latest local business to be closed due to COVID-19 transmission.
Yesterday, Fraser Health closed Petro Canada (Mayfair), located at 176 Golden Drive in Coquitlam.
The gas station is in a busy industrial area at the corner of Golden Drive and United Boulevard.
It’s one of a number of businesses recently closed to prevent virus transmission.
Also on Thursday, Prabu Foods, located at 8035-130 St. in Surrey was closed.
The closures are generally for 10 days, or as otherwise determined by the Medical Health Officer, to prevent further transmission of COVID-19 and to allow time to update and approve the worksite COVID-19 safety plan
As per provincial direction, workplace closures are posted publicly on health authority websites. Once businesses are authorized to reopen, the listing are removed.
The closure comes as the Tri-Cities had 167, cases last week, (May 2- May 8), according to the BC Centre for Disease Control, a 40% percent drop over the previous week when there were 277 cases.
