A fourth TTC employee has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to the transit agency, on Monday, they were notified that an employee in bus maintenance at the Old Davenport Building has tested positive for the virus.
The employee was last at work on March 13, and began showing symptoms later that evening after work.
The TTC said the employee is currently recovering at home with improving residual symptoms.
“Once advised of this diagnosis, the TTC immediately engaged Toronto Public Health to determine next steps. TPH and TTC conducted a joint investigation and determined in the days prior to leaving work he had only casual contact with a small number of colleagues but that there is no increased risk of exposure to them,” said the TTC in a statement.
