Across Nova Scotia, employers and workers in the retail sector are going above and beyond to make sure the things we all need during the pandemic are available when we need them. The sector has worked diligently to make sure shopping for necessities remains safe, both for workers and customers.

When it comes to safety in retail during COVID-19, we all have a role to play. We can all do our part to help keep retail stores and the people who work there safe, by following public health advice and limiting visits, and by respecting the safety protocols that retailers have in place.

Recommended prevention strategies for retail workplaces include:

  • Washing hands and surfaces often
  • Keeping a safe distance from customers and co-workers
  • Embracing service alternatives like pick-up and delivery
