With COVID-19 cases rapidly dropping across Ontario, there’s been a marked decrease in grocery stores reporting cases — including those in Brampton, Hamilton, and Halton.

For the first week in months, no grocery stores in the aforementioned areas reported any cases from June 20 to 26.

That includes most major companies operating grocery store locations in Ontario, such as Metro, Loblaw, Sobeys and Longo’s — although some chains, like Walmart and Costco, don’t report cases.

The city of Mississauga also reported no grocery cases this week or the past week.

On Saturday, June 26, the province reported 346 new COVID-19 cases and 13 deaths linked to the virus.

13,824,469 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario to date, with the province recently reaching 73% overall vaccine coverage among those aged 12 and up — a 2% increase from the previous week, according to Toronto-based research group ICES.
