This is Scarborough’s fourth confirmed case in August alone at Metro and Food Basics locations combined.

Metro has continuously updated and disclosed cases of COVID-19 for the past few months, listing locations including Parkway Mall, Queen West, Bloor and Spadina, College and Shaw, The Cold Chain Produce Distribution Centre, and more.

“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 always being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed in the province.
