According to recent data from the Toronto-based research group ICES, three regions in Mississauga are among those with the highest COVID-19 percent positivity rate (percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in the region).

ICES has listed the postal code regions in Ontario with the highest positivity rates for the week of March 28 to April 3.

Of the first 50 registered, three are in Mississauga (compared to one the previous week):

L4T at 16.55% (Goreway and Morning Star zone)
12th highest positivity zone in Ontario (6th the previous week)

L5B at 12.11% (Hurontario area from Hwy 403 to QEW)
36th highest positivity zone in Ontario (not listed in the previous week)

L4W at 12.00% (Highway 401 and Pearson Airport area)
39th highest positivity zone in Ontario (not listed in previous week)

Meanwhile, Brampton had 10 areas listed in the top 50.

“Ontario continues to see sharp increases in the number of cases and the percentage of positivity for COVID-19,” reports ICES.

“For all residents of Ontario, the overall percentage of positivity among those tested for COVID-19 during the week of March 28 was 6.1% (up from 4.9% the previous week).”

The same data for the week indicates that of Ontario’s 34 public health units, the Region of Peel (Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon) currently has by far the worst COVID-19 percent positivity.

The province announced earlier this week that it would open vaccination to anyone 18 years of age and over in sensitive neighborhoods in hard-hit municipalities like Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Toronto.
