A previously reported outbreak at Southland Holdings has grown to five cases, while cases at EllisDon and Ya YA Foods have been resolved.

There are still three active cases at Amherst Crane Rental.

As of September 30, there are four workplaces in Toronto that are facing COVID-19 outbreaks.

TPH declares a COVID-19 outbreak in a workplace when two or more lab-confirmed virus cases with an epidemiological link within a 14-day period.

Only workplaces with 20 or more employees are publicly named to protect the privacy of employees and businesses.

To date, the City of Toronto has reported 178,612 COVID-19 cases and 3,660 deaths.
