After consulting with Peterborough Public Health, Jo Anne’s Place decided to reopen the Lansdowne Street location on Friday.

“The store will be staffed with employees who did not come in contact with the employee who tested positive,” Jo Anne’s Place states in an email sent on Thursday night. “Customers should feel confident that the sanitization of the store that took place today and the existing COVID-19 protocols will offer everyone a safe shopping environment.”
