An OC Transpo bus driver has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a memo to Council, Transportation Services General Manager John Manconi said OC Transpo received confirmation on Thursday that an operator tested positive for COVID-19.

The driver last worked on Jan. 5, and the employee is now self-isolating at home.

Ottawa Public Health has advised OC Transpo that the key dates are the 48-hour period prior to the onset of the symptoms – in this case the key dates are Jan. 4 and 5. The employee did not work on Jan. 3.

Manconi says the employee operated bus #4796 on Monday, Jan 4. and bus #4702 on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
