The national wholesaler is also encouraging contactless options for ordering, including online orders and curbside pick-up.
In an announcement sent out nationally, Wolseley Canada is enforcing the mandatory wearing of face coverings at all of its locations as of September 21, 2020.
The company’s mandatory face coverings policy includes exemptions for those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, children under the age of two, and other reasonable accommodations.
The wearing of face coverings is in addition to the safety protocols that Wolseley Canada put in place earlier this year, including limited branch capacity and enhanced cleaning procedures.
“The health and safety of our associates, customers and vendors is a top priority for our organization,” said Kevin Fancey, president of Wolseley Canada in the company release. “As we approach cold and flu season, we want to take every necessary precaution to ensure we continue to keep everyone safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
Wolseley Canada is also encouraging contactless options for ordering, including online orders via the company’s Wolseley Express (for plumbing, HVAC/R and Waterworks customers), Express Pick-Up, and curbside pick-up.
