Canada Post facility in Mississauga, Ont., closes due to COVID-19 outbreak


MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Canada Post says about 80 of its employees have been ordered home from a facility in Mississauga, Ont., due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

The agency says that Peel Public Health has directed the afternoon shift at the Toronto Exchange Office to self-isolate for 10 days.

The Toronto Exchange Office is located within Canada Post’s Gateway West facility near Pearson International Airport.

Canada Post says the office is where inbound international mail items arrive for review and clearance by the Canadian Border Service Agency.

The agency says it’s making contingency plans to minimize the impact on customers.

Impacted employees who were not scheduled to work Wednesday were also contacted with instructions to self-isolate.
