TTC subway operator tests positive for coronavirus

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Mar 25th, 2020

The TTC says a subway operator has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

TTC spokesman Stuart Green confirmed to CityNews that the operator’s test came back positive on Monday.

ATU Local 113, the union representing TTC workers, said the operator works at the Wilson division and has not been at work for over a week.

The operator felt unwell shortly after their shift began on Line 1 at 5:30 a.m. on March 16 and has not returned to duty since then.

A statement from the TTC said Toronto Public Health has assured them there is no increased risk to customers or other employees, but a small number of employees who had casual contact with the operator have been asked to self-monitor for symptoms.
