On Tuesday, a driver contacted Welland Transit, as well as Human Resources, saying that they were experiencing cold/flu like symptoms,
They were advised by Public Health to go to the Welland Hospital.
Medical staff asked the individual questions as part of a COVID-19 assessment and they felt the individual didn’t exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms and therefore a COVID-19 test was not done.
