Metro has disclosed that an employee of the grocer’s Cold Chain Produce Distribution Centre, located at 5559 Dundas Street West in Etobicoke, has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

This is the first recorded case confirmed at the Cold Chain Produce Distribution Centre. The staff member reportedly last worked on June 2.

Earlier this week, Metro disclosed that a seventh employee of the grocer’s Vickers Distribution Centre has been diagnosed with the illness. Last week, an update to the disclosure list showed a confirmed case at the Metro located at College and Shaw, as well.

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.
