According to the archives, this is Metro’s first positive case in their Hamilton locations.

Recently, positive tests have been found at the company’s Food Basics location in Scarborough on both August 7 and 12.

In the last few months, Metro has consistently updated and disclosed cases of the virus 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 always being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed in Ontario.
