A Toronto bus proprietor arrived to work for a single hour on Wednesday and tested positive for COVID-19 the exact same moment.
The information was confirmed Wednesday evening from the union representing almost 12,000 public transit employees in Toronto and York Region.
“We obtained unfortunate news now an ATU Local 113 penis, a bus owner in Arrow Road Division, has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19),” ATU Local 113 President Carlos Santos said in a statement.
“I talked with the member who’s recovering at home. On behalf of ATU Local 113 associates, we all need them a fast and complete recovery.”
The worker’s final change has been on Sept. 23 from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.. The union said that they obtained the favorable test result the exact same moment.
It isn’t clear once the worker received the identification.
A spokesperson for the Toronto Transit Commission stated that the bureau is working with Toronto Public Health. They didn’t state what path the worker was working in the lead up into this test outcome or about the day he received the analysis.
“(Public health) will determine next steps related to possible risk or vulnerability in addition to information for any known connections,” spokesperson Stuart Green said in a statement.
Green stated he could not provide more information because of”privacy and staff issues.” But he emphasized that workers should self-isolate if they’re awaiting outcomes after being analyzed to get COVID-19 since they’re suffering from symptoms, have been connected with a favorable COVID-19 person or have been touched by caregivers.
As stated by this ATU, there were 70 associates and 13 additional TTC workers that have tested positive for COVID-19
