A Brampton Tim Hortons employee who worked at the Tim Hortons-Petro Canada location at 11980 Highway #10 has tested positive for COVID-19, said the city’s mayor.
Mayor Patrick Brown said that the time period of concern is from March 9 to 20, and anyone who visited the location for any reason should self-isolate for 14 days.
I know many of you are concerned if you’ve visited this location. If you’re self-isolating, contact Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700 to confirm self-isolation is required. The risk was on the Tim Hortons side not the fueling side.
