The first case at the location was identified on May 4, and more have been confirmed throughout the rest of May and into June.

In the most recent instance, the staff member last worked on May 22, according to the grocer’s records.

Last week, an update to the disclosure list showed a confirmed case at the Metro located at College and Shaw.

Prior to these new updates, Metro has disclosed cases at: Parkway Mall; The West Mall distribution Centre; the West Queen West Metro; the Metro located at Bloor and Spadina; in Mississauga at 1240 Eglinton Avenue West; and in Oakville, at 1011 Upper Middle Road East.

“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.
