Canada Post says 350 employees and contractors who work on the same shift at a Mississauga, Ont. facility were told to leave the workplace on Friday and go into isolation for 14 days.
Phil Legault, spokesperson for the Crown corporation, said Peel Public Health recommended the “precautionary measure” late Friday to prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus.
Employees who work on that shift but who were not at work on Friday have been told not to return to work for 14 days starting on the last day of work, he said. The facility is Gateway East, located at 4567 Dixie Rd.
Workers affected by the move include union members, team leaders, managers, support teams and cleaners on contract.
