Canada Post says more than 100 workers at its main Gateway facility in Mississauga have tested positive for COVID-19 since the beginning of the year.
The Crown Corporation confirms that recent test results show 121 people have been infected with the virus and that more workers will be examined in the days ahead.
The huge plant on Dixie Rd. at Eglinton Ave. is the country's largest postal processing facility and employs more than 1,000 people.
Peel Public Health says the plant can remain open and that one shift in particular has been targeted for the further testing. Other workers can take the test on a voluntary basis.
A release by Canada Post states the company has been following public health guidelines concerning the coronavirus and insists rigorous measures are in place to maintain the safety of all those who work at the site.
