Peel Region’s health department has partially shut down three more workplaces in Mississauga and Brampton because of COVID-19 outbreaks.

The affected workplaces are:


The shutdowns occurred today, April 28.

The number of workplaces that are partially closed has reached 10 workplaces in Peel Region.

At an April 28 general committee meeting, Ward 5 Councillor Carolyn Parrish said that Palma Pasta has voluntarily closed all of its facilities in Mississauga due to a small number of positive COVID-19 tests among staff members. Parrish said the company will reopen its facilities once it gets the all-clear from the Region of Peel. 

A closure or partial closure happens when five or more people at a workplace test positive for the virus within a 14-day period. The closure could lead to a mass dismissal of a shift or a specific work area within the company.

These workplaces will be allowed to re-open when the health department determines that it is safe to do so.
