Peel Region (Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon) is currently the public health unit (PHU) with the sixth highest COVID-19 positivity in the province.

Toronto-based research group ICES ranked all 34 of Ontario’s PHUs by COVID-19 positivity for the week of Jan. 16 to 22.

Peel is sixth at 22.99% positivity, down from 30.63% the previous week, when it was listed third.

Top 15 PHUs are listed above

For the week of Jan. 16 to 22, Mississauga had one postal code in the top 50 for highest COVID-19 positivity, while Brampton/Caledon had three.

ICES also says case counts reported since December 31, 2021 represent an underestimate of the true number of individuals with COVID-19, due to changes in eligibility for SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing.
