This news comes after another positive test was found at the same Food Basics in Scarborough, which Metro was notified of on August 3. That employee last worked on August 2.

Another was found at the West Mall Distribution Centre, located at 170 The West Mall in Etobicoke, adding to the already growing list of cases.

In the past few months, Metro has disclosed cases of coronavirus at locations including Parkway Mall, West 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 continually being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed.
