Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon made up more than six per cent of Ontario’s nearly 1,000 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday.

According to PPH, there were 61 new cases of the virus in the Region of Peel on Thursday.

Thirty-seven of those cases in Mississauga, 22 were in Brampton, and one was in Caledon.

According to Peel’s medical officer of health it’s too early to tell what the discovery of the new Omicron variant of the virus means for residents of Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon.

But Pearson Airport in Mississauga is restricting travel from three more countries after a new COVID-19 was variant identified.

Starting as early as Monday, all U.S.-bound travellers flying out of Pearson Airport in Mississauga must get tested for COVID-19 within 24 hours of their departure. 

There have been 119,454 cases of COVID-19 across the Region of Peel according to PPH. Of those cases 118,024 have recovered and 401 are pending.

PPH added a secondary school in Mississauga to its list of active COVID-19 outbreaks on Tuesday.

  • Kindree Public School – Mississauga
  • St. Joseph Separate School – Mississauga
  • St. Teresa Avila – Mississauga
  • Tribune Public School – Brampton

The province reported a total of 959 new COVID-19 cases across Ontario on Wednesday and eight deaths.
