Longo's team members will also receive paid days off for self-isolation and be granted more flexible scheduling.

"This latest stay-at-home order will hit everyone a little harder, but we know our Team Members will continue to rise to the challenge as essential workers during this pandemic," Anthony Longo, CEO and president, said.

The benefits are set to stay in place for 28 days to coincide with the province's stay-at-home order.
