Almost 200 TTC employees have now tested positive for COVID-19

Nov 24 2020, 4:30 pm

A total of 196 TTC employees have now tested positive for COVID-19, with 90 staff in isolation, the transit commission confirms.

However, 141 of the staff have returned to work.

According to the TTC, since November 2, 66 more staff have contracted the virus.

The transit commission said once they are notified of a positive diagnosis, they “immediately” engage with Toronto Public Health to investigate and decide on the next steps, including notifying those who may need to take additional action.

“At every location, we take action to ensure enhanced cleaning measures as recommended by public health officials, such as additional surface cleaning in frequently accessed areas, are undertaken as soon as possible,” the TTC said.

As there is ongoing community spread of coronavirus in the city, Toronto Public Health is asking all individuals who have symptoms to self-isolate at home for 14 days from when the symptoms begin and to call Telehealth Ontario, their local public health department, or healthcare provider. TTC employees are also required to call the transit system’s Occupational Health and Safety Department.

On Monday, Toronto went into another lockdown, but the TTC is still operating with a mandatory mask policy.

Vending machines selling personal protective equipment (PPE) were also installed last week in the busiest stations to help customers.
