This past weekend was a busy one as residents lined up outside grocery stores in preparation for the city-wide lockdown, stocking up for the next 28 days.

Several other locations across the GTA continued to report more positive cases among employees.

Metro has previously shared multiple coronavirus cases at Parkway Mall, West Queen West, Bloor and Spadina, College and Shaw, The Cold Chain Produce Distribution Centre, and more.
