After the major outbreak of COVID-19 at the Mississauga facility, an employee of the Canada Post dies. 224 facility workers tested positive for infection with coronavirus. Last week, over 350 workers – a whole workforce shift in one area – were sent home to self-isolate.
The spread in the facilities was so severe that 100 guards assigned to inspection packs by the Canada Border Services Agency were ordered to stay away. Health Chief Dr. Lawrence Loh would not comment on death on Wednesday if asked. Health Chief for Peel Region. He said that rapid testing of Gateway East plant cases is used.
The wife of the man also works for Canada Post on Eastern Avenue in Toronto. Before his test, the deceased employee had no symptoms and was repulsed by not being offered a test.
