COVID-19 update

We just learned that a third employee, a Wheel-Trans Operator, has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Operator, who is based out of Lakeshore Division, was first symptomatic on March 17. The individual did not work in the 48 hours prior to showing symptoms, and has not worked since. Toronto Public Health has determined that there are no implications of this diagnosis on the rest of our employees or our customers.

Your health and well-being will always be my number one priority. The Executive Team and I will continue to take these diagnoses very seriously and take our direction from the experts at Toronto Public Health, our health and safety team as well as our occupational health unit. We’re all working closely with ATU Local 113 with your safety in mind.

I hope you take comfort in knowing that we are going to great lengths to keep your work areas, and the entire system, clean and sanitized. We continue to listen to your concerns, assess our operations, and make sure we are in line with recommended best practices.

Thank you for showing up for the city at this difficult time and delivering service we can all be proud of.

Please join me in wishing our friend recuperating at home a speedy recovery.
