For the second week in a row, Peel Region (Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon) was the region with the second worst COVID-19 percent positivity rate (percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in the area) in Ontario.
Toronto-based research group ICES ranked all 34 public health units in Ontario based on their percent positivity for the week of March 7 to 13.
Thunder Bay topped the list at 6.69%, followed by Peel at 5.83% and Toronto at 4.99%.
Ontario overall is listed seventh, at 2.67%.

Peel’s percentage is up from the previous week (February 28 to March 6), where it reported 5.00%.
ICES says percent positivity reflects both the number of COVID-19 cases diagnosed and the number of people who were tested, and the numbers may fluctuate based on these factors.
