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.
