Positive test for COVID-19

Late yesterday (March 18), we learned that one of our employees at Duncan Shop has tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee worked one shift on March 11 after returning from travel and was sent home sick. They have not returned to work since.

Out of an abundance of caution we have asked all impacted shop employees to self-isolate until March 25, and return to work on March 26 if they have no symptoms. We will continue to consult with the local health authorities and keep you advised of further developments.

During this time, Duncan Shop will undergo a thorough disinfection, with special attention paid to common high-touch areas. This complements the increased cleaning and disinfection measures we have in place across our vehicles, stations and workplaces.

This is an unsettling, unprecedented time at the TTC, but I want to assure you we are doing everything we can to fight the spread of COVID-19 and keep you and our customers safe.

I will continue to keep you updated of any further developments.

For now, I must thank you again for all your hard work in keeping Toronto moving, even in this difficult time. I also ask you to keep this employee and their family in your thoughts.
