The TTC considers the health and well-being of our employees and customers our top priority.

* Please note, this number represents all confirmed cases of TTC employees, including those who had not returned to work after travelling and were already in self isolation. To date, 50 employees have returned to work.

Once advised of a positive diagnosis, the TTC immediately engages Toronto Public Health to jointly investigate and determine next steps, including notifying those who may need to take additional steps.

As there is now community spread of COVID-19 in Toronto, Toronto Public Health is asking all individuals who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 to self-isolate at home for 14 days from when the symptoms begin and to call Telehealth Ontario, their local public health department or their health care provider, and the TTC’s Occupational Health and Safety Department.

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.

We continue to work with our Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees and union locals to ensure employees are given the information and support they need. Protecting our employees and our customers is of paramount importance.
