There are no details on what department the infected employees worked in, but Loblaw, the parent company of Shoppers Drug Mart, says it is working with health officials closely.
"(The company will) follow their guidance to ensure proper notification of close contacts and required cleaning and sanitization in our stores," it said in a statement.
