The operator received a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 on April 28 and continues to self-isolate at home. To protect the privacy of the individual, we will not be releasing their name.

OC Transpo is identifying vehicles and facilities that may require additional cleaning over and above our enhanced cleaning process.

If customers have concerns over potential exposure, they can contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 to speak to a public health nurse or visit ottawapublichealth.ca.

I will continue to update you as new information is received.
