Mail delivery suspended in Etobicoke after Canada Post coronavirus cases

Sep 22 2020, 6:25 pm

Some Etobicoke residents won’t be receiving packages or letters as usual this week after two coronavirus cases forced a local Canada Post depot to close.

The Etobicoke Delivery Centre at 145 The West Mall found out one employee tested positive for coronavirus on Monday, and found out a second also contracted the virus on Tuesday, according to a statement from Canada Post.

“In both cases, the employees were exposed to the virus outside the workplace. We have no reason to believe there is any link between the two cases,” spokesperson Phil Legault told Daily Hive.

The depot closed for a deep clean on Tuesday, and as a result mail delivery has been temporarily suspended to residents with postal codes beginning with the following digits: M8V, M8W, M8X, M8Y, M8Z, M9A, M9B and M9C.

Canada Post plans to re-open the Etobicoke depot and resume regular mail service on Wednesday.
