For first week since pandemic hit, no grocery stores in Mississauga reporting COVID-19 cases
For the first week since the pandemic began and grocery stores started reporting COVID-19 cases, no grocery store in Mississauga reported a case for the week of June 13 to 19.
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.
Grocery cases are on the decline overall, but for the same week there was one or more grocery cases in the surrounding or nearby areas of Brampton, Hamilton, and the regions of Halton and Durham.
The province announced on Saturday (June 19) that 12,366,899 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario to date. According to research group ICES, overall vaccine coverage among residents 12 and older in Ontario has reached 71%.
