“Canada Post can confirm that an employee at our Toronto mail processing plant on Eastern Avenue has passed away,” a spokesperson for Canada Post said.
“We offer our deepest sympathies to the family as they mourn the loss and respect their privacy during this difficult time. We are focused on supporting our employees who have lost a colleague.”
On Sunday, Canada Post said multiple employees (at least 16) have recently tested positive for the virus. Toronto Public Health was notified about each case.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), the union representing all postal workers, also confirmed the death.
“We learned that one of our members in Toronto has died of COVID-19,” said Jan Simpson, president of CUPW. “I know I speak for all CUPW members when I share my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies to the member’s family, friends, and coworkers, and respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
Canada Post said it has provided voluntary testing for all employees and paid leave is available for employees.
