Another Amazon Warehouse In Ontario Has Been Partially Closed Due To A COVID-19 Outbreak
It's the region's third Amazon closure in a week.
Yet another Amazon facility in Brampton has been ordered to partially close after a COVID-19 outbreak — Peel's third reported Amazon outbreak in under a week.
Amazon Fulfillment Centre YYZ-3, located at 7995 Winston Churchill Blvd. in Brampton, was added to Peel Region's closure list on Friday, April 30, after being told to shut because of the region's new Section 22 order.
The order allows Peel to order businesses with five or more reported COVID-19 cases within a two-week period to close, either partially — which may apply to the full dismissal of a shift or work area — or completely.
Sixteen Peel region workplaces, including two more Amazon warehouses in Brampton and Bolton, ON, have received a closure order since the new rules came into effect on April 23.
Workplaces ordered to close under the new rule will have to stay shut for 10 days (unless otherwise specified by Peel Public Health) and employees must self-isolate in order to prevent further spread.
