Three more grocery stores in and around Toronto have reported positive COVID-19 tests as cases continue to rises across the province.

In Loblaw’s daily coronavirus update, three grocery stores have reported several cases among their employees on October 15.

A Fortinos location at 3940 Highway 7 in Vaughan, reported a single case of an employee who has tested positive for the virus.

The employee had last worked on October 11.

In North York, a Real Canadian Superstore location at 825 Don Mills Road has reported three employees that have received positive results.

The last day the employees had worked was on October 9 and 10.

A second Fortinos location, this time in Brampton at 35 Worthington Avenue, has also reported several cases that are unrelated to the Vaughan location.

Two team members at the grocery store have reported testing positive for coronavirus and had last worked on October 3 and 8.
