More Toronto and GTA grocery stores have reported positive COVID-19 cases among staff, as Ontario continues to see a spike in numbers.

Three Loblaws locations across Toronto and the GTA also reported positive cases over the weekend.

On November 21, an employee at Loblaws location 60 Carlton Street in Toronto reported testing positive for the virus. They had last worked on November 17.

That same day, two employees tested positive for coronavirus at a Real Canadian Superstore, 51 Gerry Fitzgerald Drive. The last day they had worked was November 12 and 15.

North of Toronto, an employee at a Fortinos, 291 Major Mackenzie Drive West in Vaughan, tested positive for COVID-19. The last day they worked was November 18.

Last week, several locations across Toronto and the GTA reported more employee cases in grocery stores.

Over the weekend, in preparation for the city-wide lockdown, long line ups could be seen at grocery stores and LCBOs as many stocked-up for the next 28 days.

In an effort for transparency, Loblaws regularly updates their coronavirus cases in stores by province within the last 15 days, as well as Sobey’s within 14 days.
