While the risk of transmission tends to be low in these cases, the companies say they post these notices in an effort to remain transparent. None of the notices prompted warnings from the stores’ respective health authorities.

Some companies, however, have chosen not to post their exposure notices online. London Drugs and Save on Foods only post exposure notices when directed to do so by health authorities, for example.

Loblaws and Sobeys both keep their exposure notices online for two weeks.
