One St. Catharines neighbourhood is in the province’s top 50 for highest COVID-19 positivity this week.

Toronto-based research group ICES listed the top 50 postal codes in Ontario with high COVID-19 positivity for the week of Jan. 16 to 22.

One is in St. Catharines: Postal code L2P, which is reporting 32.56% positivity.

L2P is the postal code with the 12th highest COVID-19 positivity in Ontario.

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.


For the week of Jan. 16 to 22, Niagara Region had the 10th highest COVID-19 positivity out of Ontario’s 34 public health units (PHUs), reporting 21.18% positivity.

The province overall is listed 18th at 18.41% positivity.
