Langley Sephora employee tests positive for COVID-19

Willowbrook Shopping Centre remains open despite closure of most businesses inside

Willowbrook Shopping Centre is monitoring developments related to COVID-19 after a Sephora Canada employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The beauty supply and makeup store released a statement on Wednesday, March 25, stating “Sephora Canada continues to actively monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and recently learned that an employee at the Sephora Willowbrook Mall in Langley, BC has tested positive for COVID-19.

As soon as we were aware of the possibility of exposure, we took immediate action by connecting with local health authorities to notify them and will follow the necessary protocols for cleaning and disinfecting the store. The health and safety of our employees, their families, and the community is always our first priority, and we have asked employees at our Willowbrook Mall location to monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19 (such as cough, fever, and difficulty breathing) and self-isolate for 14 days.”

Willowbrook added that the situation is evolving rapidly and that the health and safety of their employees, merchants, guests and the general community is and will be top priority.

The shopping centre facility is still open amid coronavirus closures, but hours have been significantly reduced while a vast majority of stores have shut their gates until further notice.
