A COVID-19 outbreak that’s affecting Barrie Transit workers has expanded after a seventh bus driver tested positive for the virus on Monday.
City officials say the Barrie Transit operators who tested positive for COVID-19 are isolating at home.
Officials say all city buses are cleaned and sanitized after service each day and mid-day.
This past Thursday, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit declared a workplace COVID-19 outbreak within Barrie Transit.
Officials say the four new cases aren’t linked to the previously reported coronavirus cases at this time.
“The SMDHU continues to support the health policies and practices that Barrie Transit has in place, and as a result, they believe the risk of spread is low,” city officials said.
Barrie Transit will continue to maintain its current service levels.View link »
