CLOSURE: Amazon warehouses in Mississauga and Brampton closed due to COVID-19

Published May 21, 2021 at 9:58 pm


Peel Public Health is reporting two new closures of Amazon facilities today (May 21) due to high numbers of COVID-19 cases.

Amazon Fulfillment Centre YYZ-1 at 6363 Millcreek Drive in Mississauga and Amazon Fulfillment Centre YYZ-3 at 7995 Winston Churchill Boulevard in Brampton have both been partially closed.

A full closure applies to an entire workplace premises, while a partial closure may apply to a mass dismissal of a shift or work area.

Peel Public Health recently began naming and closing workplaces in Mississauga and Brampton with five or more cases of COVID-19 in the previous 14 days. Affected businesses will need to close for at least 10 days.

Businesses will have to close if it’s determined that the cases were acquired at work or if no obvious source of infection has been identified outside of the workplace.
