NB Liquor is asking its customers to complete a COVID-19 questionnaire before shopping at any of its locations.
Anyone exhibiting symptoms consistent with the virus, returning from out-of-country travel since March 13, or has had close contact with a confirmed or presumed case of COVID-19 is being asked to remain at home.
A release from ANBL indicates the new measure is to help keep their team members and customers safe.
In remaining consistent with provincial guidelines, the questionnaire encourages anyone with a fever, a new or exacerbated chronic cough, and difficulty breathing to immediately self-isolate at home and dial 8-1-1 for a further assessment.
In addition to the new questionnaire and reduced hours, ANBL has implemented social distancing practices and increased sanitation in their stores. They have also ceased accepting cash payments and discontinued growler refills and tastings.
For the health and safety of our team and customers we are now requiring everyone to self-screen prior to entering our stores. Please see link for questionnaire: https://t.co/PdouK8UZqx pic.twitter.com/zykVElqDdy
