COVID-19 Outbreak declared at Brant Food Centre in Brantford 

April 16, 2021


BRANTFORD, ON - The Brant County Health Unit (BCHU) has declared a COVID-19 outbreak at Brant Food Centre located at 94 Grey St. in Brantford.

The outbreak was declared on April 14, after two cases of COVID-19 were found in staff members that did not have clear, identifiable transmission sources outside of this establishment.

A workplace outbreak is declared when there are two or more laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases with an epidemiological link in the workplace (e.g., same work area, same shift) within a 14-day period, where cases could have reasonably acquired their infection in the workplace.

As per typical case and contact management protocols, the individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 have been directed to self-isolate for 10 days.

Our investigation would classify any customers as low-risk for acquiring COVID-19. That said, anyone who attended this establishment between the periods of March 22-27, March 30, April 1 and April 3-5 who is concerned about a possible exposure or is experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, can contact the Brant Community Healthcare System to arrange for assessment and testing.

This establishment will remain open. Any high-risk, close contacts to the affected cases identified by BCHU are currently self-isolating.
