The retail giant partially closed three Canadian distribution centres in Ontario in May following positive COVID tests by employees.

A company spokesman says the event was cancelled this year while “we focus on the health and safety of our employees, customers and selling partners.”

Amazon previously said it was postponing 2021’s Prime Day.

The online shopping event featuring discounted products was postponed in Canada last year to October from July because of the pandemic.

The event which started in July 2015 was also postponed last year in the U.S. but took place this year over two days in June.
