An employee at the Metro located at College and Grace street has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to the grocer’s online disclosure.

The staff member last worked on June 7.

This is the first reported case at the grocery store located at 735 College Street, though Metro has reported several other confirmations at locations around the GTA.

To date, six cases have been identified at Vickers Distribution Centre at 25 Vickers Road in Scarborough. Another 10 have been reported at the West Mall Distribution Centre, at 170 The West Mall, also in Etobicoke.

Other cases have been identified at: West Queen West Metro at 1230 Queen Street West; Bloor and Spadina Metro at 425 Bloor Street West; in Mississauga at 1240 Eglinton Avenue West; and in Oakville, three instances, at the 1011 Upper Middle Road East location.

An additional case has been reported at Food Basics, a Metro company grocer, at 2900 Ellesmere Road.

“We will always contact and follow the guidance of Public Health to ensure the safety of our teammates and customers whenever we are made aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in one of our food stores or distribution centres,” reads Metro’s website.

The grocer says its online tracker is continually being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed.
