Global News published this video item, entitled “Increasing calls to vaccinate workers in factories, distribution centres in Ontario” – below is their description.
Throughout the pandemic, outbreaks in factories and warehouses have been a common occurrence.
There are growing calls for these front-line workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine as supply increases. This is especially true in Ontario, where certain regions have been dealing with ongoing challenges since the fall.
On Friday, Amazon was ordered by public health to shut down a facility in Brampton, after 240 positive cases were reported in recent weeks. Roughly 5,000 workers have been instructed to quarantine and self-isolate until March 27.
Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown says this is a perfect example of how vaccines could break the cycle of transmission.
“We’ve had outbreaks disproportionately among our essential workers in Peel Region and Toronto,” Brown said. “If we want to protect the rest of the province, we must protect our essential workers.”
