Six areas in Mississauga (one more compared to the five areas in the previous week) are among those with the highest COVID-19 percent positivity rates (percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in the area) in Ontario, according to recent data from Toronto-based research group ICES.

ICES listed 50 areas in Ontario with the highest percent positivity rates for the week of January 31 to February 6.

Of the 50 listed, the following are in Mississauga:

Three notable findings

“For all Ontario residents, the overall percent positivity among those tested for COVID-19 during the week of January 31 was 3.1% (versus 4.0% the previous week),” ICES reports.

“The percent positivity was relatively lower among persons living in long-term care homes (1.4%), compared to those not living in long-term care (3.2%).”
